Recovery Apartment Program
Our Recovery Apartment Program has a unique blend of structure and independence. Residents are provided with needed support as they transition toward independent, sober living.
The Recovery Apartment Program, with a capacity of 9, is certified by the New York State Office of Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). The program provides an experience that is more independent than our community residence while still providing significant support. Participants in this program live in independent apartments in the City of Cortland; at times, these apartments may be shared with another program participant.
Participants and Residential Advisors work together to identify needs and establish goals for achieving an independent lifestyle with a focus on educational and vocational pursuits.
Length of Stay
Length of stay is determined on an individual basis. Although this varies, a typical stay is 4-6 months.
We expect individuals to engage and participate in service planning, maintain a positive living environment, and refrain from using alcohol and other drugs not prescribed to them by a Health Care Practitioner. All individuals and staff members are expected to be courteous and respectful of one another at all times.
This program serves adults who have been diagnosed with a disorder of chemical dependency or addiction.
