Liberty Hall will close by June 30, 2018 and is no longer accepting new admissions. We are grateful for the opportunity to have served our nation’s Veterans in such a positive way.
Liberty Hall is Cazenovia Recovery Systems’ Community Residence Program designed specifically for male veterans with a substance use disorder who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Located on the grounds of the Batavia, NY Veterans Administration Medical Center, the program can serve 18 men in recovery while supporting their mental health and physical well-being. The program is licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services and funded by the VA Homeless Grant Per Diem Program.

Community Residence Program Overview
Cazenovia Recovery Systems, Inc. is highly experienced in providing rehabilitation services and housing for individuals facing the challenges of alcoholism, substance use, homelessness, and poverty. Our comprehensive network operates several community residences that support recovery, seek to restore individuals’ personal dignity and self-respect, and help to reunite families.
Our community residences offer alcohol/drug-free environments designed to facilitate recovery from substance use in an atmosphere that encourages learning further recovery skills. The level of care differs from that of a traditional halfway house because of its highly structured programs and its ability to offer services to those who are employed but still need a supervised recovery setting. Individualized care includes group counseling sessions.
Co-case management is emphasized between residents and outpatient clinics for continuing care counseling. A Community Residence Program prepares participants to pursue educational, vocational, and employment opportunities as they prepare to return to independent living. Self-help skills are stressed, providing a path toward restoring balance in one’s own life, along with establishing productive relationships with family members and others.
