Meeting the Needs of All New Yorkers
Individualized Care

In New York, addiction treatment is completely individualized. OASAS-certified programs practice person-centered care—treating the whole person, rather than the disease of addiction or its symptoms. We certify addiction treatment programs at various levels of care from outpatient counseling services to residential/bedded care. Programs and counselors work with individuals living with addiction to identify the best course of treatment to fit individual life and recovery goals and offer support to their loved ones. Specialty services for specific populations including youth and young adults, pregnant persons, criminal justice-involved individuals, and the LGBTQ+ community are available and expanding statewide to better meet the needs of all New Yorkers. We directly operate 12 Addiction Treatment Centers and oversee 1,700 addiction treatment programs. Expanded regional programming including Centers of Treatment Innovation (COTIs), Open Access Centers and Regional Addiction Resource Centers increase access to referrals and care and meet individuals wherever they are in their recovery journey.

If you think you may have a problem with alcohol, drugs or gambling but you're not sure, talk to your doctor. You can also call the 24/7 HOPEline at 1-877-8-HOPENY for referrals to assessment services in your area.
