Dashboard shows bed availability for substance abuse treatment

As New York wrestles with a growing heroin and opioid crisis, the state Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services has created the Bed Availability Dashboard that collects information on available beds from state-certified treatment providers and displays it in real time on the agency's website to help ensure that more substance abusers can get the care they need.

With the dashboard, New Yorkers will be able to search for services by location as well as determine the availability of treatment beds specific to age and gender – including space available for transgender individuals. Users also will be able to see facilities’ next available admission appointment. The site will soon be updated to include information on outpatient services as well.

The dashboard is the latest addition to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's multipronged approach to addressing substance use disorders in New York.
