The Behavioral Wellness Center (BeWell) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania helps patients who struggle with drug and alcohol addiction and mental illness.
Healthcare workers are facing a rise in unprovoked attacks and violence, driving leadership to identify ways to protect staff. BeWell decided to search for a way to improve incident response and to deter the number of threats and assaults. The center, located in downtown Philadelphia, implemented a duress system from ROAR for Good to prevent workplace violence.
