Atwater Community Residence
GCASA's Mobile Unit & Peer Services
The Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse, or GCASA, has served residents of Western New York for more than four decades. Founded in 1975, GCASA started with a focus on the prevention and treatment of alcohol and drug abuse, and has grown and expanded dramatically since. We now serve residents in Orleans County, as well, working with a team of more than 100 people and an operating budget of more than $4.2 million annually.
Since our formation, we have broadened our programs, as well, and now offer residential services and Royal Employer Services, an employee assistance program that helps to provide counseling, grief support and other programs for employers to help deal with issues that affect productivity.
We offer several proactive prevention programs aimed at educating and informing people of all ages in the region of the risks of addiction and behaviors to avoid to live a healthy and happy lifestyle. Our services include community and school based programs. We also provide responsible server training for businesses. Our programs are evidence based and approved by NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. Our community outreach and partnerships allow us to provide educational information and sound prevention strategies with proven successful outcomes.
Our treatment services are designed to be patient centered, meaning that each individual receives services that meet their unique needs. Treatment programs include dedicated services for teens, men and women, opioid and gambling treatment, medication assisted treatments, and treatment regimens that are customized for those with co-occurring disorders. We recently opened our Opioid Treatment Program (methadone clinic) at our Batavia location and launched our mobile treatment unit and peer services; bringing help to community members where they are at.
In Batavia, the Atwater Home Community Residence offers men in recovery a supportive environment to help them with their journey through overcoming substance use disorder. Offering necessary services and support in a structured, chemical-free environment, the Atwater Home Community Residence has been serving Western New York for more than two decades, helping countless individuals develop healthy living skills through treatment and support for all their mental, physical, psychological and spiritual needs. In addition, we have 24 supportive living beds, serving both men and women in the community.
