SERVING OUR COMMUNITY
Warm Hand-Off/The Bridge
Warm Hand-Off services are provided at the Emergency Department in Erie and Mercer counties for those who have experienced an overdose, have sought treatment for a medical condition where substance use is the underlying cause, or have been identified as possibly having an issue with substance abuse. The client will be offered an on-site assessment at the ER and can refuse or choose to accept drug and alcohol treatment at that time.
Case managers will help facilitate referrals to detoxification, inpatient/residential or outpatient services, when necessary. Case managers will also provide door-to-door transportation, so that the client goes from the emergency room to a treatment facility that can provide the care s/he needs.
Warm Hand-Off Services are offered to all clients, regardless of their ability to pay. Case managers will work with insurance companies or county drug and alcohol offices to secure funding.
