Founded in 1975, Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse has grown to include prevention, treatment, residential, recovery, and EAP services. Today, the agency serves Genesee and Orleans counties, as well as residents across Western New York, while employing more than 175 people with an operating budget of approximately 7.2 million annually.

Residential Services & Detox Center

Residential Services began in 1997 at 424 E. Main St., Batavia with the opening of the Atwater Home Community Residence. Our services support the development of healthy living skills. Atwater Home Community Residence staff and supportive living staff are dedicated to ensuring residents have access to needed services and support and are engaged in meaningful programs. The Atwater Home Community Residence provides a structured, chemical-free environment for men and women in recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction.

GCASA’s Detox Center opened in 2022 in an addition to back of the Atwater Community Residence.  The Detox Center is fully staffed by medical and substance use counseling professionals specially trained and certified to assist people who require short-term services.

Recovery Services

We know that everyone’s path to recovery is different.  GCASA has a variety of support services to help people on their own path to recovery.  We also have support available for family members of people who are actively using drugs or alcohol.  To start, please call our 24/7 peer hotline at 585-815-1800 or visit our Recovery Services page.

We are changing the way we communicate with our community and school partners and would like you to opt in to receive emails from us.  We would like to send periodic emails with information regarding our prevention, treatment, and recovery services, company news and announcements, and our annual scholarship opportunity.  We promise not to send too many (and you can unsubscribe if it’s not working out for you).  Please subscribe so you don’t miss out on important GCASA news.
