The New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS) has announced the reopening of a newly renovated men’s residential treatment facility in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

The Acacia Network’s El Regreso facility will house a 54-bed addiction treatment program licensed by OASAS. The facility’s treatment and support services will be guided by culturally competent, trauma-informed care principles.  OASAS contributed $11.9 million in support of this project.

“It is essential that every individual seeking treatment has full access to safe and supportive services close to their home. OASAS Commissioner Chinazo Cunningham said. “This newly renovated facility will ensure that residents of Brooklyn have access to addiction services in a state-of-the-art environment designed to improve their health.”

“We are proud to continue serving as a strong anchor in the Southside of Williamsburg / Los Sures, where we’ve had a presence for many decades, and to continue preserving important community assets such as El Regreso,” said Lymaris Albors, Chief Executive Officer of the Acacia Network.

The El Regreso facility is located at 189 South 2nd Street Brooklyn.
