Chemical Dependency Treatment Services


When there is help, there is hope.


Chemical dependency is not a weakness or a character flaw. It’s a disease – one not so different from diabetes or a heart condition. An estimated 22 million Americans suffer from chemical dependency or substance abuse.

If you’re one of them, you’re not alone. Your disease can be treated through the comprehensive inpatient and outpatient programs offered by Crouse Hospital's Chemical Dependency Treatment Services. The area's leading provider of substance abuse treatment since 1962, Crouse is the only Central New York hospital to offer an opioid treatment program (methadone maintenance).

We’re here to help you. We’re here to give you hope.
