As part of the Understanding Overdose series, The Sentinel has created a web and smart phone app to help Midstate residents access substance-use treatment.

The free and confidential app provides an easy-to-use listing of service providers in the area that are broken down by types of services offered.

The app is available for Android devices by searching for “Midstate SUT” in the Google Play store.

A version for Apple iPhones and other iOS devices is expected to be released soon.
