St. Joseph's serves residents of Franklin and Essex Counties at six outpatient services clinics. These clinics are currently located in Malone, Saranac Lake, Lake Placid (Mountain Lakes Academy), Elizabethtown, Keeseville and Ticonderoga.
At these clinics, we offer intensive case management, assessment, individual and group counseling addressing Early Recovery Skills, Recovery Issues, Relapse Prevention, Continuing Care and Co-Dependency. We also offer assessment, and individual and group counseling for Vocational Rehabilitation Services. Referrals for services based on clients' needs to Medical Services, Mental Health/Psychiatric Services, Career/Employment/Educational, Financial Counseling, Legal Services, and Self Help & Recovery Groups are also available through the clinics.
We strongly emphasize a "team'' approach, with the client being the primary participant in their "team", and included in every aspect of treatment planning. St. Joseph's Outpatient Clinics view the relationship with the client, family, and community as a partnership.
In addition to the services offered at the Outpatient Clinics, we provide assessment, individual and group counseling addressing Early Recovery Skills, Recovery Issues, Relapse Prevention, Continuing Care and Co-Dependency, and after-care planning at the Franklin and Essex County Jails.
We are active members in both Franklin and Essex County Treatment Courts and Community Services Boards.
Our admissions process is completely confidential and is dedicated to assisting those experiencing difficulties with alcohol and other substances. Prospective clients may call us on their own, or be referred by family, physicians, employers, health care agencies, school personnel, legal professionals, insurance companies and or private practitioners.
Treatment is covered by most third-party payors, health plans and Medicaid. However, in the event that a health care plan does not cover this level of care, a self-pay arrangement can be discussed and implemented based upon need. For admission, prospective clients may contact our Outpatient Services at firstname.lastname@example.org, call or walk in at the following outpatient clinics:
91 Woodruff Street, Saranac Lake, NY 12983
458 East Main Street, Malone, NY 12953

St. Joseph's also provides Family Crisis Interventions (free to families of Franklin and Essex Counties and negotiable with close county neighbors).
A pilot program at the Malone Clinic, Celebrating Families!™ is a successful, evidence-based 16-week curriculum that addresses the needs of children and parents in families that have serious problems with alcohol and other drugs. The curriculum engages every member of the family, ages three through adult, to foster the development of healthy and addiction-free individuals.
Violence Intervention Program
Provided at the Saranac Lake and Malone Clinic, St. Joseph's staff uses The Duluth Model, recognized nationally and internationally as the leading tool to help communities eliminate violence in the lives of women and children. The model seeks to eliminate domestic violence through written procedures, policies, and protocols governing intervention and prosecution of criminal domestic assault cases. The Duluth Model was the first to outline multi-disciplinary procedures to protect and advocate for victims.
Inmates at the Franklin and Essex County Jails are given the opportunity to access substance use treatment, as well as follow-up aftercare after an inmate is released from jail.
