Anyone can call the POWER Line, including women or men who are struggling with substance use and those concerned about a loved one.



POWER provides screening and Level of Care assessments through our Central Intake department. We serve all genders and ages for our assessments, then link the client with appropriate treatment or service providers. Referrals to POWER can come from any source to begin the process of screening and scheduling the client. The POWER Line is 412-243-8755. 

POWER is one of five Certified Assessment Centers (CACs) in Allegheny County. The CACs are the preferred pathway to the Allegheny County drug and alcohol treatment system. If the CAC has conducted an assessment, it is requested that this process not be duplicated by the provider receiving the referral.  

All Allegheny County residents will be served regardless of their insurance type, or lack thereof. If you are out of the county, please call to check if we accept your insurance coverage.
