About Us

For over 50 years, Crouse Health’s Chemical Dependency Treatment Services has been a leading provider of substance use disorder treatment. Serving Central New York and five surrounding counties, our program provides individualized inpatient and outpatient services for adults age 18 and up, and their families. Limited services are provided for those under 18.

At Crouse, you’ll find an experienced, multidisciplinary healthcare team, including an internist, psychiatrist, psychologist, nurses and counselors, all ready to develop an appropriate plan designed specifically for you or your chemically-dependent family member. Because every patient’s needs are unique, each recovery plan is, too. But all benefit from a well-respected, integrated healthcare delivery system that offers all the resources of Crouse Health.

From hospital-based withdrawal management to a variety of outpatient programs, Crouse Health Chemical Dependency Treatment Services gives you options to meet you and your family’s needs during your treatment and recovery. We also offer several programs to meet the needs of populations with special treatment needs.
