Substance Abuse Treatment in the Heart of NYC
New York City is a sought-after destination and there are few cities in the U.S. as exciting and culturally relevant. Instead of removing our patients from the urban environment to undergo substance abuse treatment, we incorporate the many experiences and resources New York has to offer in order to help patients gain clinical insight and coping skills.
Many of our patients are New York City residents or come from other nearby cities and associate the city and its nightlife scene with drinking and drug usage. We help those in our inpatient treatment program see The Big Apple in a new light, reframing and redefining the city through a sober lens. Outings and sightseeing are built into our treatment programs, so that patients are able to leave the treatment facility to have meaningful, sober experiences. Some of these experiences include visiting The Edge, with its 360-degree view of Manhattan and eating out at local restaurants.
In addition to its vibrant culture, New York City is home to one of the most qualified networks of therapists and substance addiction counselors. Ascendant connects patients with clinicians and addiction services providers in the community to support both their initial detox and rehabilitation process as well as their long-term recovery.
