Outpatient Treatment

Depending on your needs, an Odyssey House counselor may recommend an outpatient treatment program for you.

These programs—provided by our Outpatient Services center in the Bronx—can help you obtain the treatment and counseling you need while continuing to maintain your everyday life.

We’ll work with you to create a program that fits your life. Flexible scheduling, including day and evening sessions, is available. We also provide bilingual support.

Our Outpatient Services center also provides ongoing counseling and support for individuals who have completed our residential program.

Odyssey House’s outpatient services are typically covered by New York State Medicaid, as well as most major insurance companies and managed care plans. One of our insurance specialists will help you understand your coverage and payment options and help you take care of the details.


Odyssey House’s outpatient and residential programs share the same focus: your total well-being. This includes helping you maintain your recovery, improve your health, strengthen your home and family, and enhance your career and education.

An experienced Odyssey House counselor will talk to you, evaluate your needs, and design a personalized outpatient program for you based on proven evidence-based practices. Your program may include:

  • Individual, group, and family therapy
  • Health education seminars
  • Relapse prevention
  • Trauma recovery and empowerment
  • Anger management and domestic violence prevention
  • Medication-assisted treatment: Naltrexone (Vivitrol, Revia)
  • Opioid overdose prevention and training
  • Pharmacological and psychopharmacological support
  • Psychiatric evaluations and integrated care for depression, anxiety, and other conditions
  • Education and job counseling
  • Parenting skills
  • Housing support, including HRA 2010e applications
  • Home and community-based services (requires Health Home referral)

Trained Odyssey House alumni volunteers who have graduated from treatment to independent living are also available to provide you with ongoing coaching and support. Known as the Odyssey House Recovery Oriented Care System (or OHROCS), the peer-to-peer program provides you with a lifetime recovery network to help you overcome everyday challenges and achieve your long-term personal, family, and career goals.

Odyssey House works closely with NYC public service agencies, including the Administration for Children’s Services, to provide effective outpatient programs for their clients, who have demonstrated a consistently high rate of completion over the years.

Our Bronx Urban Youth Initiative (BUY-IN) is an innovative substance abuse treatment program for teens and young adults and their family members. Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, BUY-IN employs the proven, evidence-based Adolescent Community Reinforcement approach, which replaces activities supporting alcohol and drug use with positive behaviors that support recovery. The free-to-enroll program rewards participants not using drugs or alcohol so they can learn to make healthy lifestyle changes on their own.

The Odyssey House Recovery Center is now open in the Bronx!

The Recovery Center is a community-based, non-clinical setting that is safe, welcoming, and alcohol/drug-free.

What is Continuing Care?

Continuing Care is for anyone who would like to access continued recovery supports after completing outpatient treatment, or for those who do not meet the clinical need for outpatient treatment. You’ll have to access individual and group counseling, peer support, medication-assisted treatment, and psychiatric services.
