[ARCHIVED] 08-20-2020 Community services and police partner for substance abuse recovery


This morning, the Danville Police Department collaborated with Danville-Pittsylvania Community Services for the first day of the newly implemented Community Opioid Response and Engagement (CORE) Program. This program is an addition to the partnerships growing from the Danville Opioid Collaborative, which began in late 2019.

The Danville Police Department used information gathered from new reporting initiatives that we implemented in January 2020 to offer interdiction services to individuals suffering from drug addiction in our community. CORE partners law enforcement with trained mental health clinicians and peer counselors. Teams went out to meet over 20 at-risk community members throughout the day and offered prepared information packets from the Regional Alliance on Substance Abuse Prevention (RASAP). The packets contained information on substance abuse recovery services. The teams also offered on-site counseling for receptive individuals.

CORE is the next step in the Danville Police Department’s growing focused deterrent model aimed at helping victims of drug addiction in getting access to needed services and ultimately save lives. Anyone who needs information on treatment or counseling is encouraged to call Danville Pittsylvania County Community Services at (434) 793-0492. Victims of addiction are also encouraged to seek help from any Danville police officer at any time they feel they need services, and we will assist them with referrals.
