Huther Doyle


Located in Rochester, N.Y., Huther Doyle has been helping clients since 1977. It currently provides outpatient substance abuse treatment and primary care health services for adults and adolescents over the age of 12. The facility does provide medication-assisted detox services. Care is also provided for Spanish-speaking clients, with consideration for cultural issues, through the Esperanza Latina program.


Treatment starts with a comprehensive evaluation, scheduled by appointment. Once completed, the client is referred to the most appropriate treatment options at Huther Doyle or an outside agency.

The facility’s stabilization and medication assisted treatment programs use medication, such as Suboxone and Naltrexone, to help clients manage symptoms of withdrawal and cravings. For clients who need a supervised detox program, referrals are made to other detox programs.

Intervention services provides assistance to families and friends who plan to confront a loved one. Before the intervention, loved ones are educated about the addiction recovery process and what they need to prepare for the intervention. After the intervention takes place, family members are encouraged to continue to support the recovery process.

Outpatient services include relapse prevention education and group counseling. Specialized groups are available for Hispanic clients, adolescents, women, families, HIV positive clients, and those with mental illnesses.

After treatment, clients can participate in chronic addiction management to maintain their recovery. This treatment uses evidence-based approaches such as motivational interviewing and Behavioral Change Therapy (BCT).

In addition to substance abuse treatment, Huther Doyle provides on-site primary health care services through an outpatient medical clinic.


The treatment team includes licensed social workers, physicians, registered nurses, and professional counselors. All staff members are bilingual to be able to provide treatment services in Spanish.

The councilor was awesome. He was a recovering addict himself so he could really connect with us.
