Men's Residential Services

Outdoor Grounds of Residential Services Facility

CARS Residential Addiction Recovery Center (RARC) is a 60-bed, Men’s SUD (Substance Use Disorder) treatment program for men located 90 minutes northwest of Binghamton and 90 minutes southwest of Syracuse in Trumansburg, New York.

We believe in a holistic approach to treatment, providing clients not only with addiction counseling, but also vocational, recreational, and mental health counseling to support their ongoing recovery. Our goal is to get each member of our community ready to transition back to independent life, with an understanding of their triggers and a safety plan in place to avoid relapse.
