Behavioural Healthcare Service

For more than 20 years, we have been a recognized leader in the provision of culturally competent care and service delivery primarily to communities of color. Residential, out-patient and community based services are developed on the principles of Compassion, Teamwork, Integrity and Excellence. Services are designed to examine cultural beliefs and behavior that may impede positive health outcomes. Services are organized to provide practice and evidence based care to facilitate treatment adherence and compliance consistent with cultural competence models of care. CRR is licensed by The NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) and funded by the NYS Department of Health for HIV/AIDS service provision.

Community Habilitation Services (HCBS)

Day Habilitation assists individuals to acquire, retain or improve their self-help, socialization, and adaptive skills including communication, travel and other areas in adult education. Day Habilitation regularly takes place in a non-residential setting, separate from the person’s private residence or other home. Activities and environments are designed to foster the development of skills and appropriate behavior, greater independence, community inclusion, relationship building, self-advocacy and informed choice. Additionally, individuals participating in day habilitation services often contribute to their communities through volunteer work. Transportation services are also available.

Chemical Dependence Illness in Recovery Program

The over-arching goal of the outpatient Substance Use Dependence program is to provide culturally and linguistically competent care to dependent /abusing individuals and his/her family in a manner compatible with their cultural health beliefs and practices and preferred language.

Within this context, the primary objective is to provide for promotion and maintenance of abstinence from alcohol and other non-prescribed mood-altering drugs for all clients admitted to treatment.

To help the family of a dependent individual achieves a stable, satisfying life, regardless of whether the chemically dependent individual accepts treatment.

To provide programs to prevent the need for inpatient treatment.

To network with community resources to meet client needs and make appropriate referrals as well as providing outreach to those in need of chemical dependency treatment.

Recovery is a deeply personal, unique, and self-determined journey through which an individual strives to reach his/her full potential.  Persons in recovery improve their health and wellness by taking responsibility for fulfilling and contributing life while embracing the difficulties one has faced.
Healing and recovery are nurtured by relationships and environments that provide hope, empowerment, choices, and opportunities.

Recovery belongs to the person. It is a right, and it is the responsibility of us all.
