$2 Million in State Money for Drug Treatment Beds

By Jason Weinstein.
Governor Cuomo announced $2 million in funding for 50 new drug treatment beds in the Southern Tier, Finger Lakes, or Western New York.

The beds will be at either one 50-bed site or two 25-bed sites. To be eligible for the funding the residential treatment beds must be located in one of 20 counties, including Broome, Delaware, or Tioga.

The new beds will be in addition to recently announced funding for the expansion of services at Fairview Recovery Services on Merrick Street in Binghamton. This includes $3.6 million for a new 18-bed community residence offering substance use disorder treatment for women, and approval of new treatment capacity at Fairview’s Crisis Detox facility on Court Street.
