Treatment Access and Services Center (TASC), Inc. is a drug and alcohol central intake and treatment referral agency licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP) under the auspices of the Council on Chemical Abuse (COCA), the Single County Authority in Berks County. Originally founded in the 1980s as Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime as part of the national “war on drugs” movement, TASC became incorporated in 1992 and changed its name to better reflect its mission of guiding as many individuals as possible into substance abuse treatment services.
Operating on a walk-in, first come, first serve basis, TASC provides drug and alcohol clinical assessments to individuals who do not possess private health insurance, or who are publicly funded through Medicaid. Following the clinical assessment, TASC secures funding and placement in the appropriate level of care, namely, detoxification, outpatient, or residential treatment.
So, if you need help with addiction, but don’t have health insurance, TASC can help. We save thousands of people from the devastating effects of addiction each year.
