Now there is an app for that too.

New Yorkers struggling with addiction to treatment can now access any service in the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services continuum of care, including crisis, residential, inpatient, and outpatient and opioid treatment programs.

The OASAS Treatment Availability Dashboard application is an online and mobile-friendly platform which affords any New Yorker, including treatment providers, care coordinators, and health insurance professionals, to easily find a treatment bed or other available services, anywhere in the state and in real time.

The application can be found at

“Addiction is a disease that knows no bounds and we must make sure New Yorkers seeking help know where they can find it,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo in a statement.

Through the newly expanded application available at, visitors can find up-to-date information on available treatment beds, outpatient services and opioid treatment programs anywhere in the state, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The application’s search feature includes proximity searches that return reports on available treatment within three, five, 10, 25 and 50 miles of the searcher’s location. Queries are simple and customizable allowing for searches by location, gender of the patient, age, city, county or zip code as specified by the user.

Those searching on the system are also given the telephone number of every program that is returned by a search. Patients are encouraged to call ahead to confirm the availability of a treatment slot. Mobile users can simply click on the treatment provider’s phone number to call the provider.
