CRS - SAFE STATION

On April 20, 2017, a new pilot program, “Safe Stations”, was implemented in response to the growing opioid epidemic and the Governor’s declared State of Emergency. Safe Stations allows persons with substance use disorders, who are looking for treatment, to walk into a police or fire station and request assistance. Once at the station, the individual will be given a medical assessment by emergency medical services (EMS) personnel. If they do not need immediate medical attention, a Crisis Response team is contacted to provide further access to SUD treatment and follow-up care. If the individual does require immediate medical attention, they are transported to the emergency department (ED) by EMS and a MCT will meet the individual in the ED.
