UNITAS has an outpatient, medically supervised, treatment program focusing on maintaining an alcohol and drug-free life through various therapies, psychoeducation, and if needed, prescribed medication (Suboxone, Vivitrol, and others). Our private health care plans, like our patients, are unique and patient-focused to maximize the benefits of the treatment process.
Unitas is a voluntary not-for-profit behavioral health and primary care clinic licensed by the NYS Office of OMH, the office of OASAS, and via the DSRIP Project 3.a.i, can provide primary care services. It was first organized by Dr. Roman Pabis in 1983 as an Outpatient Mental Health Clinic certified by the New York State Office of Mental Health (OMH), specifically for Polish and other East European Slavic persons. A few years later, to meet the demand, a chemical dependency program was added that is certified by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). Most recently Unitas added physical health to the services it can provide to the communities of New York City.
