The City seeks to ensure a balance between the needs of its residents, who wish to enjoy the peace and quiet of their homes in a traditional residential neighborhood and the needs of those living in residential recovery facilities to enjoy this same quality of life that Costa Mesa has to offer.

If a person needs substance use disorder treatment, getting them the care they need when they need it is crucial. Unfortunately, there are individuals taking advantage of the current heroin and opioid epidemic by profiting off of people in need of treatment. These individuals, known as body brokers, work independently or as employees of treatment providers to direct patients into programs that provide little to no treatment. Their services are offered to those with private insurance that include out of network coverage.

New York State is intensely focused on stopping this predatory practice, and you can help. If you or someone you know has been impacted by a body broker, contact StopTreatmentFraud@oasas.ny.gov.
