This year Tully Hill celebrates its 30th year of providing substance use disorder treatment and care. On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Tully Hill Corporation, the Tully Hill Foundation and our staff, I thank you for your past and continuing support. We are enormously grateful. We are all experiencing an extraordinary time as we walk our way through the challenges of COVID-19. As a result we have decided our best and safest decision this year is to cancel our Annual Dinner celebration at the facility scheduled for October 22, 2020. We are however, creating a short video to be released in October which highlights some of our 30 year history.

We have remained open as an essential service since the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in Central New York in March. Although the pandemic has severely impacted our admissions this year we will have treated 18,875 patients since our opening October 3, 1990. We have continued to embrace our mission, vision and values as we provide excellent care for our patients and families suffering from this devastating disease.

Sharing our personal stories is important for those of us in recovery. Please consider anonymously sharing your Tully Hill testimonial with us. It is our hope that your message of strength and hope will encourage and inspire others. You are not alone in your recovery. Tully Hill remains committed to our patients, their families and the communities we serve.





“Tully Hill was the best decision I made for myself in a very, very long time. My drinking was totally out of control and I knew if I didn’t do something about it, it would only get worse; possibly fatal. The Entire Staff, The Facility, The Community and The program are all amazing; I couldn’t have asked for anything more. I have already begun to find some of the good pieces of my life I had lost do to my alcoholism. I only get better, stronger, happier and continue to stay sober everyday. You learn to take it One Day at a Time; live in the moment. Tully Hilly is definitely The Right Place To Be! Thank you to everyone at Tully Hill for your guidance, support and genuine kindness to help me change my life around and get me on my path to Recovery.” – C. T.*

Help Us Help Our Patients

“My experience here far exceeded my expectations. I came in fearful and full of shame. I am leaving with much of my guilt and shame behind me and I have a solid plan for continued recovery. The support of all the patients, counselors, nurses, kitchen, and housekeeping was so positive. I made some great friends. Thank you!” – K. K.

“Honestly the whole staff really goes above and beyond. I would say especially for me when I had some of my freak outs, they helped me out. I appreciate every single one of you. Thank you for all you’ve done for me.” – D. H.

“When I first arrived I was nervous and shy. The community and staff made me feel at home and at ease. Excellent program. I learned so much and better understand my disease. I really like that the counselors and RN’s really care and that some are recovering alcoholics or addicts with years of experience.” -B. B.

“I had a great experience. I was in the right frame of mind and the staff really picked up on that. I feel they worked with me well. I got a lot out of this experience.” – M. S.

Tully Hill strives to ensure that each and every patient admitted to our Inpatient and Outpatient services and programs meets his or her treatment plan goals.  Since opening in October 1990, we have helped over 18,000 patients and their families realize those goals, and start their journey to recovery.  Through the first half of 2020, as we celebrate our 30th year of providing only the best treatment and care, we continue ensuring that patients and families are restored, evidenced by 93% of our patients in detox meeting their treatment goals, 82% achieving their overall treatment goals (detox and Inpatient rehab), and 84% reporting no drug use whatsoever since being discharged.  Tully Hill was one of eight participants involved in a three year, National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP) Outcomes Pilot Program, aimed at testing a standardized outcomes tracking tool for the addiction treatment field.  The project resulted in the Outcomes Measurement Toolkit:  The Addiction Treatment Provider Guide in Standardized Outcomes Measurement, which was formatted into a Guide and provided to NAATP members.  As one of the few treatment facilities to maintain and make available accurate, current outcomes data, we maintain our commitment to and understand the value of transparency.  Because of the quality of its services and programs and its treatment outcomes, Tully Hill has again achieved re-certification/licensure for another 3 years for its medically supervised detox and Inpatient rehabilitation levels of care.  We also have received local, state, and national BC BS Association designation as a Blue Distinction Center for Substance Use Treatment and Recovery, signifying that Tully Hill’s substance use treatment and recovery programs meet nationally established BC BS Association selection criteria by demonstrating expertise in delivering multidisciplinary, patient-centered, evidence-based care with a commitment to quality and value.
