Recovery Center


Recovery Center

One of only two multi-county, peer-driven recovery centers in New York State, STRAWW, or Southern Tier Recovery Activities Without Walls, is funded by the New York State Office of Mental Health and serves Allegheny, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties. Our unique program is designed to promote healing and recovery for participants by providing caring support services in their home communities -- not in a building, but out in the community.

Cattaraugus County Community Services, the Mental Health Associations of Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties, and Directions in Independent Living partner with Housing Options Made Easy to create this network. STRAWW provides employment, volunteer work and community integration opportunities to assist individuals in finding and igniting their "spark of life."
