The Psychiatric Addiction Service accepts patients for short-term treatment to address all substance use disorders and addiction which may or may not be co-occurring with underlying psychiatric conditions. Treatment may include; outpatient detox, psychotherapy, non-addictive medications, and referrals to other providers. In order to be accepted for treatment, prospective patients must call to schedule their own appointments and a support person must be present at the patient's first appointment. SUNY Upstate is a teaching hospital so appointments are scheduled with trainees and the attending physician.
Steps to Obtain Treatment:
1.) Prospective patient calls 315-464-3130 (appointments will not be made for patients whose family members, friends, or referring provider – only patients themselves will be scheduled for appointments)
2.) When you arrive for your appointment, you will check in on the 2nd floor and complete paperwork in the waiting room
3.) Bring your insurance information
4.) New patients must have a support person accompany them to their initial appointment or they will not be seen
