Key staff members from Phoenix Houses of New York‘s Military Services Programs from Brentwood and New York City were invited to Albany to participate at a Veterans Roundtable summit, hosted by New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) Commissioner Arlene González-Sánchez and the Governor’s Advisory Council to discuss treatment related issues for veterans and active duty servicemen and women. Our staff, along with other providers, were given the opportunity to share their experiences, ideas, and suggestions to best serve this very unique population.
