Abstinence from addiction is only the beginning.
Northampton County residents are encouraged to pursue meaningful lives with purpose at the Change on 3rd Street. We provide a safe and sober environment which is staffed by people in recovery, who share similar experiences, and are willing to listen and assist people in early recovery. It takes a comunity to support the recovery process. This Northampton County initiative recognizes and supports the efforts and investment of those personally in recovery as well as those supporting their efforts.

Richard C. O'Donnell, 87, of Allentown, PA, passed away Sunday, July 7, 2019.
We are saddened by the passing of the Founder of the Lehigh Valley Intake Unit. He will always be with us in our thoughts and prayers as an inspiration to the organization as a safe place that will assess and never judge those with a substance abuse problem and guide them on their way to Recovery. Richard always referred to the Intake Unit as the Gateway to Treatment. The Morning Call - Legacy.com
The Change on 3rd Street offers a safe environment to those seeking recovery and/or who are part of the treatment continuum.
Although we are not a treatment facility, we are able to assist those in need, refer members of the center to community resources as needed. We encourage and guide members to pursue meaningful lives with purpose at the Change on 3rd Street .
Our hope is that they will find inspiration, encouragement, support through the examples of our volunteers and staff at the center. It takes effort and a dedicated community to support the recovery process.
