Welcome to Samaritan Village.
Here, at Samaritan, healing and saving lives is an everyday occurrence. For nearly fifty years, Samaritan Village's compassionate and enlightened professional staff has assisted chemically addicted men and women attain the life altering miracle of recovery. By using innovative addiction technology and state-of-the-art assessment instruments, Samaritan's staff are able to custom tailor the treatment experience to fit your individual circumstance.
Samaritan's mission is to eliminate the devastating impact of substance abuse on individuals, families and communities by helping addicted men and women take responsibility for their own recovery. Our belief in the unlimited potential of the human spirit and in the healing power of family, peer relationships and community guides all that we do.
Samaritan Village's treatment philosophy is based on the therapeutic community model. The foundation of this model is the principle of one recovering person helping another. Our self and mutual help approach assists chemically addicted individuals to move rapidly and successfully out of addiction's painful isolation. As a member of the Samaritan family, our clients have been able to interrupt and replace their lonely, downward spiral into self-destruction with hope, life-affirming accomplishments, and self-respect. Although there are many facilities within our service delivery system, all of Samaritan's programs place emphasis on personal responsibility, accountability, and recovery. Additionally, our programs provide an array of services in highly integrated environments that recognize the emerging complexity of problems facing you today. After the Samaritan experience, individuals formerly without hope are able to face life with newly developed confidence and the necessary skills to build productive lives for themselves and their families.

Or if your needs lie somewhere in between… today's Samaritan has the help you have been seeking and need. Flexible, diverse, and accessible treatment for today's diverse substance abusers - Samaritan Village, Inc.

We know that abstinence from substances is beginning the journey, however, we provide services that promote recovery, not abstinence alone. Someone may enter Samaritan Village homeless, without an education and jobless but when they complete treatment, they... have housing, have a job skill, and prepared to reenter the community.
Programs such as Remedial and GED Educational Services are provided so that opportunity through education is available and accessible. Education alone doesn't prepare individuals for the workplace, so we provide Vocational Counseling, Workshops, and Training Programs to all clients.
Some individuals require Mental Health Services, so all clients who require psychiatric help can see an onsite Psychiatrist. Clients may also see Certified Social Workers for weekly counseling. Recovery means having peace of mind and harmony with oneself and others. With this in mind, Samaritan Village has groups that include Psycho-Educational Lectures for all clients. Substance abuse tears families apart; therefore, Family Reunification Services are central to treatment. We believe that treatment means being a productive member of society and reunited with family.
Samaritan Village provides accessible onsite primary medical care. Five residential facilities have co-located Primary Care Clinics. The red ribbon symbol of the HIV/AIDS epidemic is on a flag that flies at administrative headquarters in Briarwood, Queens to demonstrate the organization's abiding commitment to serve all who need help. We have provided services to individuals with HIV/AIDS for over two decades; we were there in the beginning of the health crisis. Our HIV Services include primary medical care, HIV counseling and testing, support groups, and a family program for those affected by HIV.
We are committed to achieving a diverse workforce at all levels of the organization. Staff believes that treatment means that you treat people as you would like to be treated. This fundamental principle applies to clients, vendors, and fellow employees.
We believe in asking our clients about our performance and each year we conduct a Client Satisfaction Survey to give our clients a voice. We use this survey to help us invent new technologies and build better programs.
Here at Samaritan we employ a team of professionals that include Doctors, Nurses, Licensed Master Social Workers, Certified Rehabilitation Counselors, Credentialed Alcohol and Substance Abuse Counselors, as well as a host of support service staff all working together to meet the needs of the clients, their families and the community. Our staff work as a team. We reverse the inevitable outcomes of active substance abuse: incarceration, despair, hopelessness, and death. We believe that treatment works.
