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 Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS). The program provides an experience that is more independent than our community residence while still providing significant support. Residents in this program live in independent apartments in the City of Cortland; which are shared with another program participant.

Participation

Residents 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 6-12 months.

Program Expectations

We expect individuals to engage and participate in recovery planning, maintain a positive living environment, and refrain from using alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs not prescribed to them by a Health Care Practitioner. All residents are expected to be courteous and respectful of one another at all times.
