The New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS) today announced the opening of Outreach’s Recovery Residence for Women on Long Island. Operated by Outreach Development Corporation, the new 25-bed women’s residential treatment program, which opened officially earlier this year, will provide adults with comprehensive addiction services such as early recovery supports, medication-assisted treatment, and trauma informed care.
“During this difficult time with the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important now more than ever to make sure individuals and families have the services and support they need,” said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, Co-Chair of the NYS Heroin and Opioid Task Force. “The opening of this new women’s addiction treatment program on Long Island will offer recovery services and residential options for women who are struggling with addiction in the Nassau and Suffolk County area. We are committed to continuing to invest in treatment and facilities across the state to help build back better, enhance quality of life and combat the opioid epidemic in New York.”
