LESC offers safe and structured residential environments for New Yorkers living with opioid dependency. We provide the opportunity to understand past behaviors, change, and become more functional and self-sufficient. Our residential services are unique because clients are considered for admissions whether being treated on methadone or not.    

We have four therapeutic community recovery residences for people whose outpatient settings have been ineffective. Our treatment concept is based on staff-client interaction and community providing a structure for productive living. Residents learn and recover through routine interactions of daily life and act as healing influences for one another.

Our sensitive and caring treatment teams produce observable recovery results that influence and change attitudes and behaviors associated with self-reliance, autonomy and hope.

Su Casa Methadone-to-Abstinance Rehabilitation is a LESC treatment option for New Yorkers who choose to become drug-free in a therapeutic community environment. This program provides a safe and structured TC experience in which to transition into recovery over a 12 to 18-month time frame.
Short Stay Methadone Residence® is a 6 to 12-month therapeutic community experience for men and women who seek to stabilize their medically assisted methadone treatment in a safe and stable residential environment. Short Stay Methadone Residence® is a one-of-a-kind treatment program focusing on restoring much needed structure and self-esteem for every resident.


Pregnant Women and Infants Program (PWIP) is a 6 to 12-month recovery experience developed by LESC specifically for pregnant women diagnosed as opioid dependent. PWIP has been remarkably successful advancing mothers on their recovery paths and providing them the prenatal care that leads to delivery of healthy babies. PWIP also offers continued treatment after delivery.
