START Treatment & Recovery Centers serves over 4,000 New Yorkers each year and remains one of New York State’s largest non-hospital providers of health and human services. For over 45 years, START has continued to provide holistic care of our patients with an opioid addiction and co-occurring mental illness. START offers holistic, outpatient services and programs to those seeking quality treatment for drug addiction and rehabilitation including comprehensive medical care and specialized HIV services, behavioral health and vocational services along with medical case management. Opioid addiction has reached epidemic levels and deaths from drug overdoses have jumped

forefront of addressing this epidemic through evidence-based treatments designed to treat the
whole individual.
