Outreach, a nonprofit focused on treating substance abuse, will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new Recovery Center for Women in Brentwood later this month.
The center on Crooked Hill Road is a 25-bed community residence for women that combines a safe and supportive living environment with unique services for women affected by addiction, helping them to re-establish healthy living, reunite with children and family, and begin new substance-free lives.
The community residence will allow Outreach to serve an additional 50-75 women/women with children per year. In addition to bedrooms accommodating 25, the brand new facility has 24-hour staffing, common living and recreational space, and transportation available to and from Outreach’s enhanced outpatient program for women, also in Brentwood, where clients will receive case management services, individual and group counseling, training in life skills and parenting, and vocational counseling, as necessary.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 29. Expected to attend are Commissioner of the NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Arlene González-Sánchez, New York State Senator Monica R. Martinez, New York State Assembly member Phil Ramos and Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone.
