Family Focus

We’ve found that family involvement in therapy is crucial to successful long-term recovery. We encourage family members to participate in treatment whenever possible, and we offer parent-focused educational series and workshops.

Individualized Plans

Our treatment plans are fully individualized based on your needs and history. Whether you’re seeking outpatient treatment, residential services, or a medically supported detox, we can get you the care you need.

Expert Team

Our highly credentialed team brings critical insight into every individual’s unique circumstances. We effectively address the intricacies of treating both substance abuse disorders and co-occurring disorders.

Our Approach to Treatment

We understand the complex variables that affect adolescent substance experimentation and use. We develop individualized treatment plans that will help teenagers sharpen the skills necessary to thrive without the use of drugs and/or alcohol.

Our approach to treatment is focused on abstinence and the 12 Step program. Working through each of these steps provides adolescents and young adults the framework to address the complex realities of substance abuse. In doing so, our clients find meaning and purpose in their lives while they heal.

Customized Programs

We offer addiction and dual diagnosis treatment and follow-up care for adolescents aged 13-17, young adults aged 18-30, and families. People from all walks of life choose to attend treatment here, and they leave our center whole, healthy, and facing bright futures.

We use evidence-based therapies designed around abstinence and the 12-step method, incorporated into holistic and compassionate treatment plans for our clients. Our treatment plans are fully individualized, based on your needs and history. Whether you’re seeking outpatient treatment, residential services, or a medically supported detox, we can get you the care you need.

We’ve found that family involvement in therapy is crucial for successful long-term recovery. We encourage family members to participate in treatment whenever possible, and we offer parent-focused educational series and workshops.

Our Facility

Our lively Center, located in the heart of one of the world’s most influential cities, offers peaceful spaces for reflection and alone time, welcoming common areas and comforting therapy rooms. You’ll want to hang out here, whether you’ve got a session to get to or not.

The Center is open to the public on the second Wednesday of every month, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Tour our state-of-the-art facility, meet the staff and learn how we’re changing lives.

A Rich History of Helping Others

New York Center for Living is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit treatment center, and we were the first intensive outpatient treatment program of its kind for adolescents and young adults in New York City. Over the years we have helped hundreds of clients to find not only lasting recovery but a successful, fulfilled life that they and their family can be proud of.

Helping the Next Generation of New Yorkers

We believe that effective treatment should be affordable for everyone who needs it. That’s why we keep our program cost at about 25 percent of what other treatment programs charge. We also take out-of-network insurance benefits. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we do this through the ongoing support of an endowment that offsets our operating costs, allowing us to offer the highest level of care in one of the most beautiful facilities in the city while keeping attendance affordable.

Education Outreach

We welcome any opportunity to participate in programs that educate individuals, physicians, teachers, and members of the community about addiction and recovery.

For Parents

Our Parent Only Program is designed for parents who do not have a child enrolled at the Center. Weekly individual therapy sessions are available, as well as a monthly workshop providing coaching on how to influence your child’s behavior, improve your family’s communication and heal the family system overall. Parents learn the basics of substance use and abuse, acquire prevention tools and attend support sessions.

#HelpWorks Education

We offer dynamic programming and resources that focus on education, assessment and referral, 12-step abstinence-based training, and continued follow-up care. Our educational series is free and open to the public. Our professional training opportunities provide CEU course credit.

“I’ve been given a second chance thanks to the center, and I’m forever grateful.”
