Urban Substance Abuse Treatment Facilities Are More Likely To Offer Onsite Infectious Disease Screening
A new SAMHSA report based on a survey of all 13,720 known substance abuse treatment facilities across the Nation shows that facilities in the most urban settings were nearly twice as likely to offer onsite screening services as substance treatment facilities located in the most rural settings (51 percent vs. 27 percent).
Proposed activities can include live chatting via the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline website, safety planning, SMS functionality, scheduling and appointment reminders, and mapping/transportation functionality showing locations of health care resources.
The SAMHSA-sponsored Helpline, 800-985-5990, offers counseling to those affected by recent severe storms in several states, the tragedy in Santa Monica, or any natural or human-caused disaster.
