ABOUT GCASA – BATAVIA
Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (GCASA) operates four treatment facilities in Genesee and Orleans Counties of western New York. GCASA of Batavia, a community 41 miles west of Buffalo, offers outpatient programs for adult men and women struggling with substance abuse and co-occurring mental health disorders. The location also houses GCASA's prevention services, administrative team, and Royal Employer Services: an Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
The location is next door to GCASA’s residential program, Atwater Community Residence. An affiliated GCASA facility in Albion, N.Y. also provides outpatient care.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Upon admission, clients undergo an initial assessment to determine individual needs. Same-day and walk-in assessments are available. According to its website, GCASA strives to promote an atmosphere of generosity, hope, empathy, respect, encouragement, and empowerment. The Batavia location offers outpatient programs for adult men and women, as well as prevention-focused outpatient programs for adolescents.
To better treat its clientele, specialized group sessions are available, such as women’s only, opiate-focused treatment, gambling, and treatment for co-occurring mental health disorders. GCASA coordinates with area businesses to provide its no-cost employee assistance program (EAP). In addition, GCASA facilitates regular support groups for loved ones.
According to its website, GCASA also offers medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which utilizes evidence-based medications to help minimize the discomfort of opioid withdrawal and help curb cravings. According to a 2016 SAHMSA survey, GCASA is one of 11.2 percent of nationwide facilities to provide opioid-focused treatment programs.
Under the direction of the medical director, GCASA of Batavia employs an experienced staff of registered nurses and trained counselors.
