ABOUT STEUBEN COUNTY ALCOHOL AND SUBSTANCE ABUSE SERVICES
Located in south central N.Y., Steuben County Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Services (SCASAS) offers outpatient-based programs and services for adults and adolescents struggling with chemical dependency. Operating three facilities in the communities of Bath, Corning, and Hornell, SCASAS provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals with opiate dependency. In NYS, the center is among 25.3 percent of substance abuse treatment facilities with specially tailored programs for DUI/DWI clients.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
To identify individual client needs, individuals participate in an initial assessment before beginning treatment. If a client is struggling with opioid addiction, SCASAS may incorporate medication-assisted treatment - MAT into programming. However, MAT is only available to individuals who are enrolled in an outpatient treatment program.
Although treatment is based on individual needs, SCASAS' outpatient programs typically entail clinician-led individual and group counseling sessions that address the emotional and psychological contributors of addiction. Through these sessions, clients learn new coping techniques, methods for trigger avoidance, and skills for regulating emotions.
The MAT program of SCASAS involves regular Suboxone dosages, a medication proven effective in minimizing opiate cravings and alleviating the withdrawal symptoms commonly associated with opiate addiction. While receiving MAT, clients continue to attend individual and group counseling sessions.
As the client progresses through MAT, clinicians regularly monitor and manage their Suboxone dosage, gradually decreasing it until the client no longer requires the regimen to abstain from opiate use. In New York, the facility is among the 61.3 percent of facilities to administer Suboxone.
SCASAS is certified by NYS to evaluate and provide treatment for individuals charged with impaired driving. Along with driver’s license reinstatement assessments, the facility provides treatment for offenders that satisfies court requirements.
SCASAS is certified by the NYS Office of Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). The center employs a multidisciplinary team including a physician experienced in addiction medicine, psychiatrist, certified substance abuse counselors (CASAC), registered nurses, and certified social workers.
