CLAY, N.Y. — Syracuse–based Helio Health on Wednesday formally opened a $14 million, 75-bed residential treatment facility in the town of Clay.

The program — called Elements of Central New York — is located at 4567 Crossroads Park Drive.

The residential program is a multi-level of care approach to treatment for substance-use disorders, offering three levels of care. They include stabilization, rehabilitation, and reintegration, Helio Health said in a news release.

Jeremy Klemanski, president and CEO of Helio Health, called the new Helio Health program a “community asset.”

“[It’s] a facility that is going to be a place that provides an opportunity for an awful lot of people … people who have dedicated their lives to working with folks with substance-use disorders, but also to the folks that may be experiencing that,” Klemanski said in his remarks to open the event.

The 44,000-square-foot residential program includes 55 stabilization and rehabilitation beds and 20 reintegration apartments. It will be staffed by 28 people.

The New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports contributed $14 million for the renovation of the building and is providing more than $1.1 million in annual operational funding for the new facility, the office of Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a separate news release.

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul was among the speakers at the formal-opening event.

Helio Health provides health services and support for individuals in detox, inpatient rehabilitation, integrated outpatient treatment and a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic, residential services, and housing.

Helio Health also provides substance-use disorder assessments 24/7 at its Regional Open Access Center for Addiction at 329 N. Salina St. in Syracuse in addition to its peer outreach Center of Treatment Innovation at 610 N. State St. in Syracuse to meet the needs of the opiate epidemic.
