The Armstrong-Indiana-Clarion Drug and Alcohol Commission is the designated Single County Authority (SCA) for drug and alcohol services in Armstrong, Indiana, & Clarion counties in the state of Pennsylvania.

Since 1973, the Armstrong-Indiana-Clarion Drug and Alcohol Commission has been the designated Single County Authority (SCA) for drug and alcohol services in Armstrong and Indiana counties. In 2010, Clarion County was added with the two other counties.  As such, the Commission receives, administers, and allocates state and federal drug and alcohol funds targeted for this three county area.

The Commission is also responsible for assessing needs, planning, developing, coordinating programming to meet these drug and alcohol service needs and then monitoring and reviewing the outcome of these interventions. The Commission targets four core drug and alcohol service areas:

  • Prevention
  • Intervention
  • Treatment
  • Case Management

Direct services are provided through contracts with state licensed agencies. Case management services are provided through the Commission's contract with the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs. Services are available to all Armstrong, Indiana, and Clarion County residents regardless of their ability to pay.

Case Management & Treatment

The Case Management Unit provides three functions – Screening & Assessment to determine level of care and referral to treatment, Case Coordination Services to assist individuals in reaching goals in other areas of life and Recovery Support Services to assist individuals throughout their recovery process.

Act 139- The Good Samaritan Law with Naloxone

According to the PA Department of Drug and Alcohol (DDAP):

  • allows first responders (law enforcement, fire fighters, EMS) or other organizations acting at the direction of a health care professional authorized to prescribe naloxone, to administer the drug to individuals experiencing an opioid overdose.  The law also provides immunity from prosecution for those responding to and reporting overdoses. Additionally, individuals such as friends or family members in a position to assist a person at risk of experiencing an opioid related overdose may receive a prescription for naloxone.

What is naloxone?

 Naloxone is a medication that can reverse an overdose that is caused by an opioid drug (i.e. prescription pain medication or heroin). When administered during an overdose, naloxone blocks the effects of opioids on the brain and restores breathing within two to eight minutes. Naloxone has been used safely by emergency medical professionals for more than 40 years and has only one function: to reverse the effects of opioids on the brain and respiratory system in order to prevent death.
