A.S.A.P. Alcohol and Substance Awareness Program

ASAP is a free, voluntary two bed facility, available seven days a week, 24 hours a day. It provides a clean and safe environment away from substances of abuse for men and women 18 years and older. Specially trained staff provide a supportive and safe environment for people to recover from the effects of alcohol and other drugs. ASAP staff provides referrals for follow-up services for the client and/or their families.

How ASAP works: A person can be referred to ASAP by a family member, friend, colleague or other professional.  Law Enforcement and Emergency Departments refer people to ASAP when someone presents to them in an incapacitated state.  People can also check in as a self -referral. Once the person is at our facility they go through a brief screening and, if they meet the basic guidelines, they will remain with us until sober.  Occasionally, medical clearance from the Emergency Department (across the parking lot from Copley ER) might be required prior to admission into the program. Our staff meets wit the person once they are no longer incapacitated to discuss community resources that are available to help with issues of concern to them and/or their families related to alcohol and other drug use.

ASAP services are available free of charge.

How to contact ASAP: Information about recovery resources: Call Monday-Friday 8:00-4:30, (802) 888-3103 Need Immediate Assistance: If you, or someone you know is incapacitated due to alcohol or other drug use, Page the On-call Screener for assistance at (802) 250-1447.  Bring the client to ASAP, DO NOT let them walk or drive themselves. ASAP, 520 Washington Highways, Morrisville, VT 05661 – Located adjacent to the rear parking lot of Copley Hospital Emergency Department.  Page BEFORE you bring someone to ASAP:  (802) 250-1447
