About Binghamton

Binghamton, New York, the county seat of Broome County, lies near the state line shared with Pennsylvania. It is less than a day's drive from many East Coast, Northeast, and Canadian metropolitan areas.

Many hotels and motels provide ample lodging for travelers.

The Substance Abuse Problem in Binghamton

Like most of New York State, many residents of Binghamton suffer from the abuse of heroin and other opiates. Prescription pain medication is often the drug of choice. New laws restrict the availability of these medicines by limiting the number of refills people can get. Still, in 2012, nearly 2,900 substance abuse patients were admitted to rehab facilities in Binghamton. Most of these patients reported they began struggling with abuse when they were between 15 and 17 years old.

In December 2017, the New York OASAS released $3.6 million in new funds to expand substance abuse treatment in the Southern Tier of New York State. This funding allowed for additional treatment services for pregnant women and mothers with children, including building new treatment centers and community residences. Fairview Recovery Services, Inc. in Binghamton was one of the recipients of this funding.

Treatment Options in Binghamton

Fairview Recovery Services, Inc. helps people suffering from substance abuse and co-occurring disorders through a broad spectrum of services in the Binghamton area. It provides a continuum of services from the Fairview-Addictions Crisis Center, a short-term residential inpatient treatment center, to residential living, and sober living homes for men and women. It is the only licensed provider for long-term residential substance abuse treatment in Broome County.

Fairview Recovery Services, Inc. addresses vocational needs, mental health services and housing needs of clients through a range of services. The Addictions Crisis Center has 18 beds, and houses adult men and women in a chemical dependency crisis for up to 30 days. It is entirely funded by NY OASAS and charges no client fees for services. The Crisis Center provides medically monitored withdrawal in a secure, structured setting with 24-hour care. After detox, the Center makes referrals to the appropriate level of care for each person.

The Fairview Community Residence and Fairview-Merrick Community Residence are aftercare facilities for men and women, respectively. They are funded through client disability funds, public assistance, NY OASAS, and client self-pay channels. Clients in the early stages of substance abuse recovery may live in these facilities and receive treatment, attend support groups, and get case management services in a semi-independent, secure, dorm-style residence. They usually stay from three to six months.

At the Fairview-Supported Living Residential Program, up to 30 adult men receive residential aftercare for addiction treatment in a sober living setting. Most of the men are formerly homeless and have completed the Community Residence level of care. They live in independent apartments, but continue to receive case management, attend support groups and receive counseling services. Another supported living program houses up to 11 women and their children separately from men. Services are similar to the male program, but the women may also receive parenting courses.

Fairview also offers Shelter Plus Care, an apartment-based independent living program with 25 apartments for employed or employable formerly homeless men and women with a history of substance abuse. This program allows clients to live in apartments with their families and is funded through HUD, public assistance, and clients paying rent. Clients receive case management and help to maintain an ongoing association with the recovery community. The Housing Plus Care program adds another eight apartments for single adults and provides services similar to the Shelter Plus Care program.
