Chemical Dependency Program

At Greenwich House, counselors work closely with clients to provide focused and individualized care, helping each client remain committed to their recovery. Our counselors understand the breadth of circumstances that clients may be dealing with in addition to their addictions, including homelessness or incarceration, and treat every client with the utmost respect and courtesy. By effectively treating the multiple and complex needs of our clients, we hope to help them achieve self-sufficiency, and to stop the cycle of incarceration and reliance on welfare systems, removing those barriers that inhibit their entry into the workplace and society as a whole.

Our professionally licensed social workers and counselors treat more than 300 clients with specialized program tracks, offering services like counseling for individual, couples, families or groups, psychiatric evaluation, dual diagnosis treatment, medication management and suboxone maintenance, vocational and educational programs, and services for those dealing with loved ones struggling with addiction.

Group sessions foster a sense of community spirit and build trust among clients and staff alike. We provide a range of group therapies in a safe, open and accommodating environment. Groups offered include relapse prevention, anger management, job search support, creative recovery through art and writing, support for ex-offenders, LGBTQ support, and Spanish-speaking groups, among many others.

The Greenwich House Chemical Dependency Program is licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASES); it is funded by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Evaluations and assessment are conducted onsite, and admission can take as little as one day.
