About Su Casa

Residential Treatment Program for Heroin and Other Addictions

A Comprehensive and Evidence-Based Approach to Recovery

Residential Treatment Program for Opioid Addiction

Su Casa is a highly regarded residential treatment facility for people with opioid use disorder run by the Lower Eastside Service Center (LESC) in New York City. Founded in 1974, Su Casa was one of the first residential drug rehabilitation centers to offer both a methadone to abstinence program, and a methadone maintenance program for people addicted to heroin and other opioids.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Su Casa has since expanded its programs to include buprenorphine and Vivitrol—additional medications for treating addictions to heroin, fentanyl, prescription pain medication and other opioids—as well as a renowned treatment program for pregnant women and infants.

Additionally, Su Casa offers on-site primary medical care services, vocational training and educational programs to help its clients achieve a full and sustainable recovery.

Evidence-Based Approach to Recovery

Su Casa, which means “your house,” provides clients recovering from opioid addiction with a supportive, social and therapeutic environment designed to address all of their needs. While dedicated professionals, including doctors, therapists and counselors, follow evidence-based practices to support clients in tapering and transitioning off their illicit drug use, peers help them practice the social skills needed to return to their community and live healthy lives. Job training and classes so clients can complete high school are also offered.
