Areas of Specialization

  • 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.

  • 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.

Review by Contributors


Founded in 1980, Cazenovia Recovery Services (CRS) operates nine centers in New York State that treat individuals struggling with substance use disorder who are experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. The center's programs, which include Sundram Manor, are among the 70.8 percent of rehabs in New York State that operate as private nonprofits.

Located on a leafy residential street five miles southeast of Buffalo, Cazenovia Manor provides residential treatment for adult men who are both struggling with addiction and homeless, according to HUD standards. It's one of the 64.5 percent of facilities in New York State that offer some treatment specifically for adult men. In order to qualify for treatment, prospective clients must be enrolled in a Medicaid Managed Care plan.


The length of stay varies according to each client's needs, and can range between a couple of weeks and several months. CRS recognizes that addiction is rarely an isolated difficulty, and so bases its treatment model around a holistic approach, which includes trauma-informed care, mental health counseling, and basic primary medical care, alongside substance use counseling. The program emphasizes empowerment, responsibility, and learning the skills for daily living.

Residents participate in individual, group, and family counseling, all of which are collaborative and take account of clients' past traumas. By living in a community setting, residents improve social and living skills. To further prepare residents for life after treatment, the center is among the 52.3 percent of New York State-based facilities that offer vocational counseling for clients.


Staff at Cazenovia Manor includes master's-level certified substance abuse counselors. The single alum polled by to date gave the center four out of five stars for its staff's level of training and experience.


Cazenovia Manor offers 23 beds in semi-private rooms, as well as meals for all residents. The facility is 100 percent accessible for individuals with disabilities, and is on a major bus route, as well as offering other transit links. The single alum polled by to date gave the center three stars for its accommodation and four stars for its cleanliness, meals and nutrition, and exercise and leisure offerings.


The single alum polled by to date would recommend Cazenovia Manor. "Staff and patient relationships are well defined; routines are stressed," they wrote, giving the facility five stars for its administrative and discharge practices, four stars for its family participation and ability to treat co-occurring disorders, and three stars for its holistic offerings and counseling options.

Cazenovia Manor also has mostly positive feedback on secondary sites, with a 4.3 out of five-star average rating based on 16 reviews on Google.[1] More than one alum offered high praise for the center's staff. "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," Kyle wrote in a typical comment. The only negative comment cited administrative problems and difficulties with certain staff members, though these complaints were not corroborated by other reports.


Cazenovia Manor only admits clients who have Medicaid and offers a sliding fee scale. The sole alum polled by to date gave the facility four stars for its overall affordability.
