Chemical Dependency

Chemical dependency services offer a variety of treatment programs in a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental environment. We have more than 30 years of experience, and use the best, most effective methods for addressing addiction. Medical, psychological, social, and vocational issues are addressed to help patients attain sobriety. Credentialed and licensed staff members work with patients to reach their goals. Our chemical dependency services are licensed and certified by OASAS (the New York State Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services).

Inpatient Detoxification.
Comprehensive medical, psychiatric, nursing and counseling services are available on our 17-bed detox unit.

Outpatient Chemical Dependency Service.
We offer an array of services based on the level of care needed. Patients receive group, family, and individual counseling. Twelve-step meetings are held onsite, as well as H.I.V. counseling and health education. Patients requiring an intensive setting are able to participate in our Rehabilitation Program. In this program they come in three to five days a week, four hours a day, and receive group and individual counseling. Patients requiring a less intensive program can participate in our clinic program for therapies that concentrate on relapse skills, on building socialization skills, and developing coping skills. Evening clinic is available for students and employed individuals. For more information please call (718) 883-2750.
