Huntington, NY – Mountainside has officially opened its newest outpatient center in Huntington, NY. Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci officially cut the ribbon during an opening ceremony on June 5. Supervisor Lupinacci praised Mountainside’s commitment to the people of Suffolk County.
“Just as the Town of Huntington has proactively addressed the opioid and addiction crisis in my first 17 months as Supervisor, Mountainside is a welcome addition to our community that will offer critical education and prevention services in the fight alongside us,” said Lupinacci.
The 5,000-square-foot facility, located at 141 East Main Street, provides compassionate, high-quality treatment services to those struggling with substance use and mental health disorders. Mountainside Huntington’s outpatient programming offers a convenient solution for those aiming to strengthen their recovery while remaining close to home.
Mountainside Huntington offers three programming options: Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, and Individual Therapy. The Outpatient Services program will feature Individual and Group Counseling, Family and Couples Counseling, Psychiatric Services, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Recovery Coaching, Medication-Assisted Treatment, Adolescent Services, and Health and Wellness Education.
Accessible addiction treatment is needed in the ongoing battle against the opioid crisis. According to a 2018 report from the New York State Department of Health, opioids claimed the lives of 344 Suffolk County residents in 2016. Suffolk County has suffered from some of the highest rates of fatal opioid overdoses throughout New York State.
“We came to Huntington because the need is so great with the opiate crisis, particularly in Suffolk County,” says Stephen Langley, Executive Vice President of Clinical and Cultural Stewardship at Mountainside. “By expanding our behavioral health platform to Long Island, we can continue to share the message of hope in recovery and save even more lives.”
