Areas of Specialization

  • Individual Therapy
    This term describes one-on-one therapy, in which a patient and trained counselor, social worker, psychologist or psychiatrist meets privately with a patient to discuss challenges related to lifestyle, work, family and romantic relationships that may have contributed to the development of an addiction.

  • Holistic Therapy
    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.

Review by Contributors


Cazenovia Recovery Services has been offering treatment to individuals struggling with substance abuse disorders as well as homelessness and poverty since 1980. The private nonprofit organization has many residencies around New York, but Cazenovia Manor in Buffalo is for adult men only.


Group and individual therapies are offered in which clients learn daily living skills. The facility’s website states that the program is sensitive to those who have experienced trauma. Case management, vocational services, and employment services give clients a sense of purpose. Residents also receive aid reintegrating back into the community and may be put in contact with off-site counseling services.


The program’s website does not currently list information about its staff, but a former client submitted a survey to and gave fours out of five stars for the staff’s level of training and experience and ability to treat co-occurring disorders.


The 24-bed residency features semi-private rooms in a community-style environment. Meals are served on-site, and residents may utilize the recreation and activity area.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has received a single response from a former client to date. The anonymous reviewer offered only average ratings for holistic treatment, connectivity, counseling options, and accommodations. They wrote that the “old building is hard to maintain.” The same alum gave high ratings for treatment effectiveness, family participation, meals, and exercise.

Elsewhere online there are more reports of positive experiences. 28 Facebook reviewers to date gave ratings that averaged 4.2 out five stars, though few offered commentary. Jeff gave the highest possible rating and described the facility as a place that’s “Helping people reclaim their life one day at a time.”[1]

Two additional reviewers on Google both gave five out five stars for their experiences with the program. Kyle wrote: “The staff are great understanding kind and caring and it is a great place to find yourself and Recovery if you want to live a sober and happy life.”[2]


Though the facility’s website mentions the offer of sliding scale fees, further details about pricing and coverage are limited.

staff and patient relationships are well defined; routines are stressed. old building is hard to maintain. i had to go twice, ten years apart; the administration had changed, they're building a new building.
