Law Enforcement Treatment Initiative

The goal of this initiative is to connect individuals suffering from substance use disorder with treatment options. Drug overdoses are now the number one accidental killer in the Commonwealth. It is our greatest public health challenge and our greatest public safety challenge—and it is one of Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s top priorities as Pennsylvania’s Chief Law Enforcement Officer.

When a Pennsylvania county joins the Law Enforcement Treatment Initiative program, every law enforcement entity within that county has an opportunity to save lives and play a role in breaking the stigma of drug and alcohol addiction. The program empowers law enforcement officers to guide individuals who are suffering from addiction into treatment, rather than diverting them into the criminal system.

In addition to law enforcement, this program also empowers individuals and families to get involved in breaking the cycle of addiction. The first step towards recovery is helping an individual who is suffering from addiction into treatment. Those in need of a treatment referral for either themselves or family members should view the Regional and County Wide Drug and Alcohol Treatment Resource Guide. The guide allows individuals to search for the county in which they reside and call the number provided to speak with someone who can walk them through the process of seeking treatment.

Pottsville Police Department found me in a parking garage using meth and alcohol. Police asked me if I was interested in drug & alcohol treatment. I told the police I wanted to clean up my life. Police then drove me to a treatment provider for an assessment. Schuylkill County Law Enforcement Treatment Initiative (LETI) changed my life forever. I was able to go to treatment instead of the 'drunk tank'.
