Lehigh Valley Intake Unit founded in 1985, offers a wide array of intervention, assessment, referral, case management and information services to the Lehigh Valley community. Taking our cue from Cicero’s classical exhortation to wisdom- The Hortensius (Founding name of the Intake Unit), we have gathered a staff proficient in bringing insights and fresh perspectives into the lives of our clients.

The Intake Staff has developed a strong professional awareness of human services resources. Years of intervention and case management demands have taught us to know what help is available and how this can best be served for a needy client. At the same time, we function as an arm of the County in advocating a healthier and safer social climate.

The Intake Unit serves as a vital source of drug and alcohol information for Lehigh Valley residents. Besides answering telephone inquiries and distributing printed literature, the Intake Staff provide presentations to local groups, as well as in-services to professionals in the field.

The Intake Unit is a member of the Lehigh Valley Care Association and DASPOP (Drug/Alcohol Service Providers of Pennsylvania)
