CMR Recovery Residence - Substance Abuse and Alcohol Recovery Program Philosophy
At CMR Recovery Residence, clients are provided with customized addiction treatment services through a 12-Step perspective that produces lasting results. Services provided include daily individual counseling, group therapy, nutritious meals, supervised outings, scheduled group activities and more. CMR is conveniently located near three of New York’s major airports and works with clients to provide transportation to and from the residence free of charge.
Areas of Specialization
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.
Client & Family Support Groups
Group therapy is a vital component of addiction recovery treatment, considered as important and effective (sometimes even more so) than individual therapy. Benefits include reducing isolation and loneliness and providing the opportunity to learn from others in recovery. In the addiction setting, group therapy is run by trained professionals who guide participants toward a shared goal of recovery.

ABOUT CMR RECOVERY RESIDENCE \u2014 SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND ALCOHOL RECOVERY PROGRAM
Located in a wooded area on Long Island, 50 miles from Midtown Manhattan, CMR Recovery Residence offers residential treatment for adults struggling with addiction. The program was founded 74 years ago by early members of the original 12-step program, under the guidance of Bill W.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The program is offered in 30-day units, with a minimum stay of 30 days. The length of stay is tailored to suit the individual client\u2019s needs, though CMR advises 90 days.
As its origin story suggests, CMR Recovery Residence offers a program that\u2019s heavily based on the 12-Steps, with dedicated meetings for opiate addiction and alcoholism. As well as 12-step meetings, residents take place in daily individual and group counseling sessions.
Graduates of the program may access on-site aftercare meetings seven days a week.
The center is staffed 24/7 by \u201cdedicated men and women in recovery,\u201d according to the facility\u2019s website. Each of the three individuals polled by Rehabs.com to date on the staff\u2019s level of training and experience gave it four out of five stars.
ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
Private and semi-private rooms are available, all of which have cable TV. Photos published on the facility\u2019s website show simple, traditionally decorated bedrooms. A complete laundry service is provided, and there\u2019s a smoking lounge with a filtration system. Extracurricular activities include supervised shopping trips and outings. Each of three individuals polled to date on CMR\u2019s accommodations and meals gave four or five stars in both categories. In the category of cleanliness, reviewers provided slightly lower ratings of three, three, and four stars.
CMR Recovery Residence provides free transportation to and from major airports and mass transit hubs.
WHAT ALUMNI SAY
The five reviews submitted to Rehabs.com to date were unanimously positive, albeit with some caveats. The three reviewers polled on the facility\u2019s offerings in a variety of treatment metrics each gave CMR four out of five stars for the overall effectiveness of its treatment, the strength of its 12-step program, and its treatment for co-occurring disorders. Reviewers repeatedly praised the staff. \u201cThe Staff: 10/10 The apotheosis of a wise, friendly unit of experts,\u201d Brian wrote in a representative review. Brian also praised the physical facility, writing: \u201cWith acres of land, one can parambulate the landscape, interact with nature, shoot hoops, or sit in the sun and read a book from CMR's massive library.\u201d
There were also some areas of repeated criticism, however. The three clients polled on CMR\u2019s holistic offerings gave them low ratings of one, two, and three stars, and more than one client was disappointed that the facility doesn\u2019t accept insurance.
At the time of this writing, secondary review sites also yielded almost unanimously positive feedback. On Facebook (where the center manages its own page), CMR Recovery Residence had an average rating of four out of five stars, based on 11 reviews; on Yelp, it had three five-star reviews; and on YellowPages.com, it had two five-star reviews and a two-star review.   Several reviewers on these sites said their stay at CMR Recovery Residence had saved their lives: \u201cIt truly is an amazing place. When you're recovering there, you're not a number, you're family. I can not say enough about the staff. They saved my life and I am forever grateful!,\u201d Sue wrote in a representative review on Facebook. One alum, however, did note on YellowPages.com that in their view treatment is geared mainly toward alcoholics, and less helpful for those struggling with drug addiction.
This center is private pay only; insurance is not accepted. Treatment costs $6,000/month, and the center aims to provide affordable care for those who cannot afford typical private, insurance-funded programs. The three individuals polled on the facility\u2019s affordability to date gave it one one-star rating and two four-star ratings.
