ARU Outpatient Program

507 West 145th Street
New York, NY 10031

ARU is an OASAS licensed medically supervised intensive outpatient substance abuse program for adults ages 18 and up. The outpatient center is a friendly and compassionate environment that helps people to address and overcome their substance abuse while living at home and remaining active in their community.  Every patient receives a comprehensive evaluation, a patient-centered individualized treatment plan, and a program of therapies unique to their treatment needs.  The outpatient center has a multidisciplinary team available Monday through Friday.  We believe our interdisciplinary approach allows us to empower our clients in their recovery process to resolve current issues, and construct a new lifestyle by building on their strengths.  The outpatient center has flexible daytime ad evening hours.  We accept Medicaid, Managed Medicaid, and most major insurance plans.  For individuals who lack insurance, we also offer a sliding scale based on the ability to pay for treatment.  Lack of insurance or ability to pay does not bar from enrollment.
