Buffalo-based Cazenovia Recovery Systems, Inc. fully assumed the licenses, ownership and management of Fellowship House programs on January 1 and has opened a new Cazenovia Recovery Niagara County Clinical Office at 625 Buffalo Avenue in Niagara Falls, NY.
The not-for-profit organization operates residential programs for individuals in recovery from alcohol and substance use disorders. The former Fellowship House programs that are now part of Cazenovia Recovery are Madonna House in Lockport, intensive rehabilitation for women and their children; and Somerset House in Appleton and Sundram Manor in Niagara Falls, community residences for men and women.
The Supportive Living Program, serving men and women and their children, continues to provide services at 1204-06 Niagara Street in Niagara Falls. It focuses on independent living skills and relapse prevention.
“Cazenovia Recovery and Fellowship House professional staff have been working on the merger and a successful transition for the past six months,” Cazenovia Recovery Executive Director Suzanne L. Bissonette, said. “We look forward to serving individuals in recovery in Niagara County and to helping them build better, healthy futures.”
Husnara Sundram founded Fellowship House in 1980.
Founded in 1981 in Buffalo, Cazenovia Recovery provides comprehensive services to men and women in recovery, many of whom have co-occurring mental health disorders, and are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Last year alone, 897 individuals were served, including 47 military veterans, in four different levels of care including intensive residential rehabilitation, community residences, supportive living peer apartments and independent housing.
