Resources for Residents - Where to Turn for Help

This informational sheet provided by the Bucks County Drug & Alcohol Commission Inc., will help you or your family member access drug and/or alcohol treatment, as well as give you some other resources.

The first step in accessing treatment is to have a drug and alcohol assessment to determine the type of treatment and recovery plan needed. Adult and adolescent services are available throughout Bucks County. For more information, please call our Approval of Care Department at 215-444-2730 or visit www.bcdac.org.   

  • To access treatment for those who have private health insurance, call the number on the back of the insurance card listed under Mental Health/Substance Abuse.

  • To access treatment for those with Medical Assistance, call Magellan Health Services at 877-769-9784 and they will give information as to the nearest treatment agency for an assessment, or go to one of the listed assessment sites below.

  • To access information regarding Veteran’s Benefits, call 877-222-8387 to find out eligibility for services. Individuals who are Veterans are eligible for county funding. 

  • For individuals with no insurance, there may be county-funded treatment available, as well as other supportive services. An individual or family member can walk into one of the assessments sites listed below. Individuals who are considered a priority population, such as pregnant substance users, injection substance users, overdose survivors, veterans and adolescents, are exempt from any limitations. Preferential treatment is given to pregnant females.
