Pennsylvania Launches a New Resource for Drug & Alcohol Treatment

The Pennsylvania Department of Drug & Alcohol Programs (DDAP) announced a new resource available to Pennsylvanians looking for drug and alcohol addiction treatment. DDAP partnered with the national nonprofit Shatterproof to launch the free Addiction Treatment Locator, Assessment and Standards (ATLAS) platform, available online at The site explains various treatment types and what to expect when going through each treatment. A 10-minute assessment, structured like popular social media quizzes, leads those seeking treatment to options that meet their unique needs. ATLAS rates addiction facilities based on Shatterproof’s standards and patient reviews. People seeking treatment (or their family and friends) can search facilities based on reviews and other criteria, including location, insurance accepted substance focus, and age-specific programs. The online tool can be viewed on any web browser in both English and Spanish. ATLAS is free and anonymous. To date, the tool has been launched in nine states and reaches more than a quarter of U.S. residents. DDAP’s 24/7 Get Help Now Hotline—(800) 662-4357—remains an option for those in need of immediate assistance.
