Charles Street Residence

Our supervised community residence serves those with substance use disorders or with co-occurring mental illness.  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 Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Services (OASAS).  The residence provides a home-like environment including a kitchen, dining room, common living space, and bedroom that may be shared with another individual.




Participants work closely with a Residential Advisor who assists them toward independent living.  Individuals identify their needs and establish goals for achieving an independent lifestyle.



Length of Stay

Length of stay is determined on an individual basis. Although this varies, a typical stay is 4-6 months.



Program Expectations

Residents agree to engage and participate in service planning and treatment, maintain a positive living environment, and 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.
