The Single County Authority, formerly the Office of Addiction Services, plans, funds, and monitors substance abuse prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery support services in Philadelphia.
Through a network of treatment providers, the Philadelphia Single County Authority (SCA) guides recovery-oriented drug and alcohol treatment for people enrolled in Medicaid, as well as people who are uninsured and underinsured.
Core Services are support services designed to assist participants in recovery while they are receiving formal drug and alcohol treatment. These services, in the form of workshops, were developed to address a broad array of needs and create additional opportunities for wellness and recovery. The coordination of treatment and Core Services helps participants maximize their rehabilitation recovery process. Core Services Facilitators provide support services onsite at the various network provider locations.
All Addiction Service funded outpatient, intensive outpatient or partial hospitalization treatment facilities can access Core Services for individuals participating in their treatment programs. Core Services are also available to inpatient residential, criminal justice programs and OAS funded Recovery Houses.
