Southern Tier Drug Abuse Treatment Center, known as New Horizons, is part of the Binghamton General Hospital in Binghamton, the main city of New York’s “southern tier,” just north of the Pennsylvania border. New Horizons offers inpatient, outpatient and Intensive Outpatient (IOP) treatment. The programs aim to treat clients in a clinical fashion, including those with co-occurring disorders. New Horizons also offers specialized IOP programs for women and senior citizens.
Accommodations and Food
The inpatient treatment program is in a ward of the Binghamton General Hospital. So, the residents stay two to a room in typical hospital style. Each room has a private bathroom and there is a common room where meetings and meals take place. The menu is prepared by the hospital nutritionist and most special dietary needs can be met.
The outpatient methadone clinic is a small facility, adjacent to the hospital, with basic amenities. Methadone treatment is administered in a casual setting with a TV in the main room where clients can lounge comfortably on couches.
Treatment and Staff
Treatment is available only to residents of Broone County, New York. Binghamton General Hospital offers medical detox, usually lasting four to six days. Clients may be discharged directly from detox into the New Horizons program, but only after chemical withdrawal is complete. Following admission, which is granted on a case by case basis, clients are assessed by a team and given an individualized treatment plan. Methadone maintenance is available to clients of both inpatient and outpatient tracks, as is dual diagnosis support.
IOP clients attend individual and group sessions for three hours a day, four days a week. The average length of IOP is four weeks. The dual-diagnosis program is its own entity; clients meet for two hours a day, four days a week. This program allows clients to step down from inpatient treatment, gradually addressing different stages of recovery.
The New Horizons outpatient treatment program is comprised of two staff members and one program director responsible for the outpatient facility management. Outpatient treatment includes group and individual therapy weekly. It is rather comprehensive considering its size, as it also includes a family program and intervention services for families and employers.
Binghamton General Hospital’s treatment programs offers language support for American Sign Language (ASL) and other hearing impaired needs.
Southern Tier New Horizons offers simple, but comprehensive treatment in a clinical setting for clients who need to tackle substance abuse. With a variety of options including a methadone program, Broone County residents can find affordable care through these programs.
