Veterans

Samaritan Daytop Village is nationally recognized for its work with military veterans and provides comprehensive services for today's returning male and female service members. A pioneer in veteran-specific treatment for more than 30 years, we currently administer three residential treatment facilities exclusively for veterans struggling with chemical dependency, post-traumatic stress disorder and other life challenges.

Drug and Alcohol Dependency Treatment for Veterans

Our treatment services for veterans are grounded in principles of trauma-informed care that reflect our understanding of the prevalence of trauma and its profound impact on all spheres of human functioning. Our treatment philosophy emphasizes safety, respect, empowerment, personal integrity, and the healing power of relationships within a community of veterans in recovery.

Staff members reinforce these by providing a range of services including group and individual counseling, relapse prevention counseling, trauma-specific therapies, primary and mental health care, vocational and employment services, family intervention, veteran benefits counseling, housing assistance and aftercare services.

Samaritan Daytop Village administers three treatment facilities exclusively for veterans:

43rd Street Veterans Program

Our 48-bed flagship treatment facility in Manhattan provides unmatched treatment for addiction and post traumatic stress disorders for male veterans.

Ed Thompson Veterans Program

Samaritan Daytop Village responded to the need for expanded services for veterans by opening this 50-bed facility for male veterans in 2006 in Richmond Hill, Queens.

Women Veterans Program

New York State's first residential treatment program dedicated to female veterans is located on the campus of our Ellenville location in upstate New York. It offers gender-specific treatment at a safe and encouraging environment for women veterans.
