Charles Street Residence

Our supervised community residence serves those with substance use disorders, including those with co-occurring mental health concerns. The residence serves as a support for those transitioning toward independent community living from higher levels of care.

The Charles Street Residence, with a capacity of 14, is certified by the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS).  The residence provides a home-like environment.

Participation

Residents work closely with a Residential Advisor who will assist them toward independent living.  A recovery plan is created to assist Individuals with achieving individually-determined goals. 

Length of Stay

Length of stay is determined on an individual basis. Although this varies, a typical stay is 6-12 months.

Program Expectations

Residents engage and participate in recovery planning, outpatient treatment for substance use and, when appropriate, mental health treatment.  Residents are expected to abstain from alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs not prescribed to them by their Health Care Practitioner.  Residents must be willing and able to live in a group setting and are expected to be courteous and respectful of one another.
