On November 20, Stony Brook Medicine commemorated the opening of its new adult behavioral health facility, Quannacut Outpatient Services, at 905 East Main Street in Riverhead with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours. “Quannacut” is the Native American word for “hope” or “rainbow.”
Quannacut is equipped to provide patients 18 years of age and older with all outpatient care in one location. From in-depth intake evaluations to short- and long-term follow-up care plans, it provides access to world-class substance use treatment.
Quannacut has provided treatment for alcohol and substance use on an outpatient basis since 2001. The expansion, with the new 14,000-square-foot facility being nearly three times the size of its previous location, more than doubles patient capacity. Total patient visits are expected to be between 18,000 and 20,000 per year.
