Cayuga Centers announced on Thursday that it will eliminate its residential treatment center and lay off as many as 120 employees.

They say the layoffs will go into effect as soon as the last resident is discharged.

The board of trustees arrived at the decision on Wednesday.

Center officials say their residential location has made it difficult to attract young people.

According to a statement from Cayuga Centers, they have lost $2 million since July.

“It would have been money well spent if it could have enabled us to attract the number of youth we need to break even. But the numbers just aren’t there,” said CEO Edward Hayes.

The facility is located off of Hamilton Avenue.
