ICYMI from earlier today: we dedicated the new supportive housing at 845 N 12th Street to Spc. Lural Lee Blevins III, one of the Edison HS 64 who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation in Vietnam. We were honored to have some of his family members with us. Thank you to Congressman Robert Brady, Rep. Dwight Evans and Dr. Johnson for all you have done and continue to do to support the Blevins family and to get Spc. Blevins the recognition he earned. Please watch, share and remember: our veterans deserve our support every day, not just on November 11.

North Philly was promised an addiction crisis center — but never got it

DBHIDS used to operate an additional behavioral assessment center in the Girard Medical Center complex at Eighth and Girard, but it closed in the fall of 2016. That left two behavioral assessment centers remaining in North Philadelphia.

    North Philly was promised an addiction crisis center - but never got it
    It's been six months since the city's Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services announced it would build a brand new emergency facility in North Philadelphia to help people with substance use disorder become stabilized and access treatment. The center, which would provide 24-hour walk-in services for drug users in crisis, still isn't open, and DBHIDS is avoiding questions.
