Substance Abuse Treatment Program

The Substance Abuse Treatment Program [SATP] at Montefiore is comprised of two opioid treatment programs, Unit I and Unit III, as well as an outpatient chemical dependency program named New Directions Recovery Center.

Opioid Treatment Programs: Unit I and Unit III

SATP has been providing methadone treatment for opioid dependence for over 35 years. In addition to providing this empirically supported medication, SATP Units I and III offer cutting edge individual and group counseling to admitted patients. It also offers a “one stop shopping” model of care owing to its onsite primary care services and chronic illness care, as well as mental health, nutritional and vocational services. Both clinics are on Jerome Avenue, along the western side of the Bronx and the hours are flexible to accommodate most schedules. To make a referral, please contact the clinic directly.

Outpatient Chemical Dependency Program: New Directions Recovery Center

New Directions Recovery Center (New Directions) is a medically supervised outpatient substance abuse treatment program that provides a wide range of supportive services to individuals aged 18 and older who are struggling with active substance use or who are at high risk for relapse.  Our dedicated staff of counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists and medical providers work together to assist individuals in gaining the skills they need to lead productive lives free of drugs and alcohol.  New Directions offers group and individual counseling, onsite psychological and psychiatric services as well as buprenorphine (Suboxone®) treatment for opioid dependence. We also provide intensive outpatient treatment, services in Spanish, and onsite vocational and nutritional counseling.  In addition to our wide range of treatment groups, specialized support groups are available for men, women, Spanish-speakers and those in need of anger management.

New Directions operates during the day and late afternoon to accommodate work and school schedules.  We are conveniently located near the Burnside stop on the 4 train and near stops for the Bx40, Bx42 and Bx32 buses. 

Walk-in intakes are welcome Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 1pm.  Intakes can also be scheduled by calling (917) 564-8788.
