Clubhouses for Teens and Young Adults Battling Addiction

More than $1.6 million in annual funding has been reported by Governor Andrew Cuomo to create first-of-their-kind adolescent substance use disorder clubhouses in seven regions across New York State. These community-based clubhouses will promote peer-driven supports and services in a non-clinical setting for young New Yorkers in recovery or at risk for substance use disorders.

Some other advances that have been made to ensure individuals have access to the substance use disorder care they need include:

  • Increased residential treatment availability across the state
  • Addition of nearly 2,000 new opioid treatment slots statewide
  • Prohibiting insurers from using a "fail first at outpatient treatment before a more intensive level of care is approved" philosophy when making substance use disorder care decisions
  • Naloxone training and expansion of availability of naloxone to more pharmacies resulting in 85,000 trained individuals and more than 2,500 lives saved and
  • Comprehensive public awareness efforts including the State's Combat Heroin and Talk2Prevent campaigns, including a toolkit to assist families and communities in talking about opioid addiction.

Single Point of Access (SPOA)

Single Point of Access (SPOA) is part of the NYS Office of Mental Health's (OMH) 2000-2001 initiatives designed to expand the county's existing community based mental health system and help make it a more cohesive and better coordinated system. The goal is to create a system that promotes recovery-oriented services, which are widely available, flexible, personally tailored and responsive to individual needs. Individual's preferences will be integrated into the process. All referrals and transitions between programs and services will be entered into a database, in order to monitor who receives services, who does not, alternative recommendations, and the actual mental health residential and case management needs. There will be periodic reassessment and monitoring of an individual's need for a particular level of care/service.

SPOA Coordinators connect people with serious mental illness to mental health services.
