Lehigh Valley Drug and Alcohol
EASTON LOCATION/ 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.

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
