Mother Cabrini Health Foundation Awards $100,000 Grant to Crouse Hospital’s Addiction Treatment Services Program



Syracuse, NY – Crouse Hospital’s Addiction Treatment Services (ATS), the largest hospital-based addiction treatment program in Central New York, has received a grant of $100,000 from the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation. The grant will enable Crouse to expand programs first supported by the Cabrini Foundation in 2021/2022.

The funding will support staff positions, staff training, outreach, transportation and wellness activities developed for two specific patient groups – pregnant and parenting women and justice-involved individuals.

“This grant will allow Crouse ATS to expand 30-day outreach post-release to facilitate patients’ continued engagement in substance use disorder (SUD) counseling,” says Monika Taylor, MBA, LCSW, CASAC, Director of Addiction Treatment Services.

Mother Cabrini Health Foundation funding will also help to expand Crouse ATS gender responsive treatment for pregnant and parenting women. ATS will provide a road map for treatment before and after delivery.

Crouse ATS provides programs to treat substance use disorders (including opioid use disorder) by treating the whole person and giving patients as many tools as possible to recover from addiction. This funding will also be used to provide wellness activities to support patients’ treatment journey as well as training for staff to increase their skills in treating a range of patient populations.

This generous support from the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation will help Crouse continue on its mission of providing the best in patient care and promoting community health.
