Officials from Bucks County recently came together to celebrate the upcoming creation of a new treatment center in the area.
Some of those in attendance for the ceremony included Dave Kratz, the county’s Director of Corrections, Donna Duffy-Bell, Administrator of BH/DP, and Bernard Griggs, Project and Diversity Officer, among other officials.
“We are in dire need of more mental health services across the board, but particularly in the criminal justice system,” said Commissioner Vice Chair Diane Ellis-Marseglia.
“This center will join our successful co-responder program, our CIT training initiative, and our drug and mental health courts in not only changing lives for the better, but in bringing real value to taxpayers by channeling County resources into real solutions.”
The ceremony comes three weeks after Commissioners approved $16 million for the facility’s construction. Funds for the project have been allocated from federal and state grants and funding streams.
