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.
