Lehigh Valley Drug and Alcohol

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.

Resource List Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers-Northampton County (updated 2015)

Bethlehem Recovery Center
Abstinence from addiction is only the beginning.

Hello to
Change On 3rd Street

Northampton County Drug & Alcohol Division administrator, Tiffany Rossanese and Lehigh Valley Drug & Alcohol Intake Executive Director, Tim Munsch felt that a recovery-based resource center was needed in the Easton area. There was so much feedback on the positive results of the Bethlehem Recovery Center in the Bethlehem community that Northampton County funded the new RCO, “Change on 3rd St”, located at 117 North 3rd. street Easton, PA 18042.

Hi, my name is Phillip Chaney. I am the program director at “Change on 3rd Street. I’m grateful to serve the community of Easton and to help individuals begin their journey in recovery. I am a recovering member of a 12-step fellowship with over 16 years’ clean. I want individual’s seeking recovery to know that they are not alone. The mission of Change on 3rd Street is “to help those with their recovery with the resources that we and other agencies have to offer because together, recovery works!”

Change on 3rd Street offers persons in recovery a safe place to find support and access to resources that will help them to be successful in the journey ahead of them. We collaborate with the existing community resource centers to meet the needs of people who are in need of a variety of things. A soft-opening occurred on July 5, 2016; our official opening will be announced soon.

We continue with our renovations and have added furniture which includes a television. This establishes an inviting ambience that can be felt the moment you enter Change on 3rd Street. The county funding has been put to good use by providing the renovations which also includes two new computers with internet access. With this valuable resource, we can offer assistance with career search, resume writing and resume editing. We also offer health & wellness, yoga, board games, 12-step meetings and much more to be planned. Change on 3rd Street wants to help.
