Support Services

Building on Traditional Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Programs
Expanded Programming

Many OASAS providers offer expanded services that build on traditional prevention, treatment, and recovery programs. Locally-based services address the needs of specific counties and regions and offer additional support to individuals, families, and communities, affected by addiction. 

  • Addiction Resource Centers and Problem Gambling Resource Centers are regional hubs that connect New Yorkers to appropriate services. In collaboration with local prevention programs, these centers increase community education and raise awareness about addiction.
  • Prevention Resource Centers work with schools and coalitions statewide to strengthen evidence-based prevention strategies. 
  • 24/7 Open Access Centers and Centers of Treatment Innovation increase access to assessments, referrals, and familial support.
  •  Peer Engagement Specialists and Family Navigators help individuals and families understand addiction and navigate treatment and insurance systems. 
  • Clubhouses and Recovery Centers provide non-clinical, drug-free environments for recreation and skill-building.
  •  Housing Providers help homeless or at-risk families with a history of substance use disorder obtain stable housing and employment, which promotes recovery.
