Columbia County Pathways To Recovery Helpline

The helpline, which can be reached by calling 877-HOPE-365 (877-467-3365); 9am to 9pm 7 days a week / 365 days a year, offers the following services:

  • Information
  • Resources
  • Referrals
  • Connections to other local recovery programs

We are not a crisis hotline.  If you are in a crisis situation, you should call the Columbia-Greene Mobile Crisis Assessment Team (MCAT) at 518-943-5555.  They operate 8am – 10pm / 7 days a week.  If you have a medical emergency, you should dial 9-1-1 immediately.

Our Recovery Helpline is staffed by trained volunteers.  Most have some type of experience with the recovery community; either from personal experience or with a loved one.   They have probably been through some of the same experiences you are facing and have had the same questions that you may be looking for answers to.  We’re here to help and to provide hope.

Everyone deserves to find the path to recovery that works for them. There is help and there IS hope in recovery.

We employ a holistic, wellness model, addressing issues of addiction, treatment, prevention and recovery in our mountain top community. MCC Serves the following Mountain Top Communities of Greene County NY: Haines Falls, Tannersville, Hunter, Lexington, West Kill, Jewitt, Prattsville, Ashland, Windham, Hensonville and Maplecrest.
