    Experiential Addiction Therapy in the Heart of NYC

    Our treatment facility is located in the heart of New York City, and we believe in utilizing our local environment to create unique, holistic healing experiences for those struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. While group therapy and process work is a hallmark of our outpatient treatment program, we also focus heavily on experiential therapy by organizing regular outings and activities for patients.

    Our Treatment Approach

    Ascendant’s intensive outpatient program is designed to help men and women with substance use disorders find lasting recovery and build a supportive community that they can turn to for advice and encouragement.

    Our recovery services are rooted in proven, evidence-based therapeutic modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and motivational interviewing.

    Our outpatient treatment group sizes are intentionally kept small (up to 8 individuals) to create an environment of trust and intimacy where it feels safe to explore difficult emotions and past experiences. Each patient in our intensive outpatient program is assigned a dedicated case manager as well as an experienced therapist who can help address mental health issues related to addiction.

    Following substance abuse treatment, we work with patients to create a discharge plan which may include transferring to another of our addiction treatment programs or to one of our many partner treatment centers and sober houses.
