The communities served by both organizations will benefit from the partnership.

Cantata Health Solutions, a leading provider of healthcare technology solutions for the Behavioral Health industry, has announced that they have entered into an affiliate partnership with the New York Association of Substance Abuse Providers (NYASAP). The goal of this partnership is to better serve the communities that both organizations are a part of.

The affiliation will allow for collaboration between the two groups in order to provide training, education, and resources on substance abuse prevention and treatment. In addition, it will also give NYASAP members special discounts towards access to Cantata’s technology solutions and services. This new partnership is just one example of how Cantata is working to improve the quality of care for those affected by substance abuse.

ASAP’s mission is to support organizations, groups, and individuals that prevent and alleviate the profound personal, social, and economic consequences of alcohol and substance use disorders in New York State.

I believe it’s the strong match between our similar beliefs in terms of goals for service delivery as well as mutual trust which will allow us both better access & representation within respective communities.”
