SUBSTANCE ABUSE SERVICES

HCC has integrated substance abuse screening and prevention throughout all of its programs. Our providers have been trained in the use of evidence- based interventions to successfully treat addiction, including SBIRT and medication assisted treatment. In addition, our primary care physicians and psychiatrists can prescribe buprenorphine for those in pursuit of recovery.

HCC has received conditional approval from OASAS, which will enable our program to integrate a more intensive substance abuse treatment model. This will include group-counseling sessions in addition to the individual therapy currently offered as well as support for those experiencing recovery.

HCC utilizes a compassionate, person-centered approach toward addiction treatment. Focusing on the person’s strengths and weaknesses, we seek to empower the person using an individualized approach.
