To assist clients to identify current issues that need to be addressed, especially emergent needs beyond the normal daily needs. These may include, but are not limited to, legal issues, Social Security, telephone calls for services needed, medical transportation, Board of Social Service needs, etc.
Our team meets weekly to discuss clients who participate in Drug Court, and each month a staff member goes to Drug Court to discuss each client’s progress and issues. We also will write letters and speak on behalf of a client when appropriate if they are facing legal issues.
Clients will be picked up by one of our transportation vehicles and brought to our program and returned home at the end of the day. Our transportation vehicles pick up in Camden County and parts of Gloucester and Burlington Counties that are within our pickup range.
We have a phlebotomist on staff to assist with blood work for medication monitoring.
Unity Place’s physician Assistant, Melissa Lewis, is here two to three days per week. Clients are scheduled to see her within the first two weeks of admittance to the program. Melissa Lewis, PA works under the direction of our Medical Director, Dr. Norman Chazin, MD.
Clients are provided with breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack during the program. Breakfast and lunch are prepared daily on-site.
