Stabilize your medication treatment for opioid use disorder and start feeling better about yourself in a supportive 6- to 9-month residential program in our Su Casa facility.

Our Short Stay maintenance program for heroin and other opioid addictions in Su Casa provides the consistent and focused structure you need to get your recovery journey on track before returning to outpatient treatment.

A new kind of family. The philosophy of family is the underlying foundation of the Short Stay maintenance program. Our community is designed to reflect important aspects of family relationships and interaction. You'll learn the program’s family concept and customs so you can integrate structure and respect into your recovery. You'll learn to treat each fellow resident as you would a brother or sister throughout your time in treatment. You'll get to know the customs informally among your peers and more formally during morning meetings and seminars. Depending on how long you stay and the staff's assessment of your readiness, you'll be assigned more responsibilities within the residence.

The family concept of Short Stay integrates structure and respect into your recovery.

We are a community of residential clients guided by a team of professionals focused on helping everyone who lives here build the skills needed to live a healthy independent life again. Our expert staff includes physicians, physician assistants, credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselors (CASAC) and licensed masters’-level social workers and nurses. With our staff to guide you, you'll re-adjust how you interact with your surroundings as you address your own clinical, medical and nutritional challenges. We'll also help you with any vocational, educational, legal or financial issues you may be facing.  

This accredited program provides individualized treatment planning, vocational counseling and on-site medical and HIV counseling for all of New York City and throughout New York State. Short Stay is licensed and regulated by the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS). The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) accredits the program.

The challenges and problems caused by substance use disorders are well known. As a resident of Short Stay, you'll become part of a community that continues to confront these issues through treatment that helps you get your life back on track.

I tested the waters at Medication Assisted Maintenance Residence Program and found out this treatment really was for me. I was broken when I arrived. I was physically sick with no hope. LESC has changed my life. I leave here Hep C free, with my GED, and a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor Trainee Certification.
