Supporting Treatment Recovery Program (S.T.A.R.)
CBRPD, Plumstead Township Police, Buckingham Township Police, and Doylestown Township Police have collaborated with the Aldie Counseling Center in Doylestown to implement the “Supporting Treatment Recovery Program” (S.T.A.R.). With support from the Bucks County Drug and Alcohol Commission and the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office, this program will help those with substance use disorders and their families by providing a pathway to outreach, information and treatment. Officers provide contact information for the Aldie Counseling Center to those who may benefit. Once consent is obtained, the information is forwarded to Aldie who will contact the individual/family members to offer treatment options and/or level of care assessment.
“This STAR program is further proactive proof of our police commitment to the health and well-being of the people they serve,” said Bucks County DA Matt Weintraub. “I commend Plumstead Township Police Department, Central Bucks Regional Police Department, Buckingham Township Police Department and Doylestown Township Police Department for their commitment to this progressive addition to the countywide BPAIR Program. They certainly will save lives.”
