SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Helio Health’s Regional Open Access Center for Addiction (ROACA) located at SBH’s Integrated Outpatient Clinic, 329 N Salina Street, Syracuse, provides open access assessments and evaluations 24 hours a day, seven days a week to individuals seeking immediate assistance for substance use disorder.

“ROACA becoming a 24/7 operations means that people in Central New York who need access to substance use disorders care will now be able to access that care more timely,” said Jeremy Klemanski, Presidents and C.E.O. of Helio Health.

The ROACA provides individuals in Onondaga, Cayuga, Madison, Cortland, Oneida and Oswego counties with screening and assessment to determine an appropriate treatment recommendation, as well as community recovery service options in their home county.

Treatment recommendations are determined using the Level of Care for Alcohol and Drug Treatment Referral instrument, known as the LOCADTR 3.0, which incorporates the need for detox, risk of relapse and social determinants of health, in order to provide the best approach for treatment options.

Central New York residents have had limited access to timely addiction treatment services in the past. The ROACA’s 24/7 operation is unique and its central location in Syracuse is close to hospitals, a Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP), community-based treatment providers, and the area’s only medically supervised withdrawal and stabilization program.
