Chemical Dependency Program

COVID-19 UPDATE: WE ARE OPEN AND CONTINUING TO ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Greenwich House – Chemical Dependency Program (CDP) recognizes that many of us need recovery support more than ever.  Our mission at Greenwich House CDP is to provide a safe, trauma-informed, trusting, and engaging environment from the moment a client first contacts us to begin their treatment and recovery process. During these unprecedented times, Greenwich House CDP has worked to implement new strategies, protocols, and procedures to prioritize client safety while also maintaining our high standard of client care.

Greenwich House Service Delivery Update

The Chemical Dependency Program (CDP) is open Monday – Friday for telehealth services with extended hours. Our clinic, which is located on 27th street, is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 9:00AM to 6:00PM for scheduled appointments, hybrid groups, and crisis intervention.

At this time, clients have the option of joining their individual and/or group counseling sessions in person or remotely.  Should a client prefer telehealth/telephonic services, but be unable to utilize these services from home, they may present to the clinic, where they can use our laptops to join virtual counseling sessions in private, sanitized rooms. 

At the Chemical Dependency Program, our vocational counselor and peer worker are available to assist clients in setting up and learning to navigate telehealth services. This assistance can be provided on site or remotely.

Current and prospective clients should note that onsite services may be impacted and will be modified as the State and/or local government COVID-19 guidelines continue to change.  Should you have further questions about our services or if you would like to schedule an intake please call us at 212-691-2900 or contact Dale Scudder LMHC, Intake Coordinator, at dscudder@greenwichhouse.org
