ABOUT UHS BINGHAMTON GENERAL HOSPITAL

Substance abuse treatment is available for both men and women of all age groups including adolescents, adults, and seniors. Medical detox services are not available on-site.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment at UHS Binghamton General Hospital starts much like the majority of facilities in New York with a confidential assessment to determine the appropriate level of care for each client. The assessment is conducted by trained and credentialed medical staff, and can be used for referrals to other programs as needed.

Assessments are completed through appointments, and the facility provides an appointment management service. If needed, 24-hour emergency services and crisis intervention services are available to stabilize patients psychologically and physically. This does not include medically managed detox services.

The New Horizons program is UHS Binghamton General Hospital’s substance abuse treatment program. New Horizons provides treatment through outpatient services, making it one of New York’s 579 outpatient programs for substance abuse. This allows clients to continue their daily lives while seeking treatment.

Family involvement is considered to be a vital part of the treatment process, as it is in 81.7 percent of New York’s facilities. Treatment includes family participation through community education programs, family and employer intervention programs, and relapse prevention services. The intensive outpatient program (IOP) is available in morning or evening sessions for three hours per session, four days per week. Most clients participate in this program for four weeks.

The dual diagnosis program lasts two hours per day, four days per week. It is also an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that provides treatment for co-occurring disorders. In New York, 61 percent of facilities in the state provide services to treat clients with co-occurring disorders.

There are many different specialized groups to address the needs of all clients. This includes a seniors’, recovery management, codependency, criminal justice, young adult, beginner’s, and adolescent services.

They provide various types of therapy such as art therapy. They have various different counselors and different kinds of therapy sessions to attend. I attended certain groups as an intern to one of the therapists and have had a friend attend this facility for help. The staff is friendly and educated and dedicated to helping people through their various personal struggles or tramas.
