Accessing Treatment Through BCDAC, Inc.

HOW DO I ACCESS TREATMENT?

The first step is to obtain a level of care assessment. Level of care assessments are provided at one of BCDAC, Inc.'s contracted assessment sites (listed below). Staff at the assessment site will determine if emergent care needs - detox, psychiatric, prenatal - are necessary.

If emergent care needs are determined, the qualified staff member will refer to the appropriate services. If an individual does not have any emergent care needs requiring immediate attention, a level of care assessment will take place at the assessment site. The level of care assessment will determine if treatment is recommended and what level of treatment is appropriate. The assessor is responsible for coordinating appropriate services. 

Assessments are free of charge, with the exception of the DUI offender, who may be charged. Pregnant women will receive preferential treatment in all levels of care and throughout the drug and alcohol service continuum, which has immediate access to treatment.

If this is a medical or psychiatric emergency, please go to the nearest emergency department or crisis center.

how do i pay for treatment?

  • Private Insurance - Call the number on the back of your insurance card listed under Mental Health/Substance Abuse/Behavioral Health.

  • Medical Assistance - Call Magellan Health Services at 877-769-9784 and they will direct you to the nearest treatment agency for an assessment.

  • If your insurance denies treatment - Ask about Act 106 of 1989. Under most group insurance plans in Pennsylvania, you are entitled to certain alcohol and other drug treatment benefits. Act 106 requires most group health insurance policies drafted in the state of Pennsylvania - including HMOs and the Children's Health Insurance Program - to include mandated minimum benefits for treatment of alcohol and drug addiction. All treatment services must be provided in a program licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health specifically to provide alcohol and other drug treatment.

  • If you do not have insurance coverage - There may be County-funded treatment available. An assessment must take place with one of BCDAC, Inc.'s contracted providers.

If you have any questions, please call BCDAC, Inc. Approval of Care at 215-444-2730 and ask to speak to an AOC Care Manager.
