A Holistic Approach to Treatment

Drugs, including heroin and prescription opioids, and alcohol.

For individuals suffering from the disease of addiction, Catholic Charities of Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster provides recovery assistance in an outpatient setting, including day rehab, outpatient clinics, medication-assisted treatment, and family support. Catholic Charities provides comprehensive addiction treatment and recovery support. We are committed to maintaining high quality, compassionate clinical care.

Substance Use: Treatment

Our goal is to help individuals build a psychological, physical, and spiritual foundation to ensure a lasting recovery. All of our treatment services are individualized and allow for the frequency and intensity of care to be adjusted according to the clinical needs of each individual seeking help. Our staff includes licensed/credentialed: psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, social workers, Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselors (CASAC), and mental health practitioners.

Most insurances are accepted, also self-pay, and sliding scale.
No person will ever be denied service due to ability to pay.

Substance use disorder is a chronic, progressive, and potentially fatal disease which disrupts the health, safety, and quality of life for all who are touched by it. If left untreated, the illness will result in the social, physical, emotional, and spiritual destruction of the individual and loved ones. Persons who have been affected by their own substance use disorder, or that of a loved one, may receive treatment at one of Catholic Charities’ locations in Orange and Sullivan Counties. Outpatient treatment services are available in Goshen, Middletown, Monroe, Monticello, Newburgh, Port Jervis, and Walden.  Catholic Charities provides a comprehensive continuum of care for those seeking recovery.


Day Rehab

Catholic Charities’ Monticello location offers intensive Day Rehab services up to five days a week, five hours a day with group and individual counseling. Day rehab clients also have access to health services, high school equivalency exam preparation, vocational and job readiness training, recreation, and art therapy. Enhanced services are available for individuals coping with both substance use and mental health disorders.

Outpatient Services

For those who are contemplating recovery or are already in the recovery process, Catholic Charities offers specialized services to assist individuals with their journey through recovery. These services include individual, group, and family therapy. Individual therapy focuses on reducing or eliminating substance use, skill building, adherence to a recovery plan, and social, family, and professional/educational outcomes. Group therapy is utilized in conjunction with individual therapy to provide social reinforcement for pursuit of recovery. Our clinicians provide a variety of services to people in treatment for substance use disorders including assessment, treatment planning, and counseling.
