Chemical Dependency Program

Please Note:

In response to the ongoing physical health risks that exposure to COVID -19 bring to our clients as well as our staff, we have instituted the following changes to our service delivery, hopefully on a very temporary basis:

  • If you have tested positive for the Coronavirus, have shown symptoms of the virus, or been exposed directly to others who have tested positive or shown symptoms of the virus, please do not enter the Greenwich House environment. You should return to your place of residence and contact your primary physical health care provider.
  • We continue to urge our clients to utilize Social Distancing. Spend the majority of your time in your place of residence and when venturing outside stay at least six (6) feet from other individuals and avoid even small gatherings until otherwise directed by State and/or Local governmental officials or agencies.
  • Unfortunately, we will no longer be able to allow clients to congregate on the 6th floor.
  • Beginning April 7th, our office on the 6th floor will be open with clinical staff in attendance only on Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This day will be used ONLY for walk-in admissions and crisis situations or for an on-site telephonic session with a counselor because of an inability to communicate via cell phone.
  • Whenever possible, sessions will be conducted via telephone. Sessions may be scheduled Monday thru Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Within the next two weeks, we anticipate utilizing the Zoom platform to facilitate group sessions on your cell phone or PC. You will be contacted by staff regarding group attendance and times.

We are accepting new clients. If you would like to start treatment, or anyone has any questions or concerns, please call us at (212) 691-2900 or contact Gail Reid at greid@greenwichhouse.org
