Olean New YorkCouncil on Addiction Recovery Services Review

The Council on Addiction Recovery Services, also known as CAReS, has been offering substance abuse services, in Olean, New York, and the surrounding areas since 1974. It has operated the Weston’s Manor, a residential treatment center for men since 1988 and opened Wendy’s House in 1997 for the treatment of women. For the last three decades CAReS has also offered an outpatient treatment option. CAReS utilizes parts of the 12-step modality but does not stick to it exclusively. CAReS also has offices in Salamanca, Machias and Gowanda, NY.

Treatment and Staff

Entry into the CAReS outpatient program begins with an intake appointment, followed by orientation into the program. Then an evaluation with a counselor takes place to assess the exact level of care each client needs and devise an individualized treatment schedule. Depending on the plan that is set up, clients may attend according to their needs and the level of their insurance coverage. Clients get to attend as often as they want and may also choose the sessions which they attend.

Group utilizes a CBT approach and is usually held two times each week and last a maximum of an hour and a half. Clients also have an individual hour-long appointment with their assigned counselor once a week. The average length of attendance at the CAReS outpatient program is six weeks. Once they have successfully completed this period, clients may reassess their treatment plan.

CAReS has about a dozen CADCs, eight of whom work out of Olean while two to three can be found at the Salamanca location, while the Machias and Gowanda ones are small offices thus staffed by one counselor at a time. Each counselor runs individual sessions as well as group sessions of four to 15 clients.


The Prevention department of the Council on Addiction Recovery Services is dedicated to providing quality classroom programs at local schools. These sessions utilize evidence-based curricula to provide students with age-appropriate information for protection from substance abuse.
