Addiction

The Mount Sinai Health System offers comprehensive services for individuals and families struggling with problems of substance misuse and abuse. Our treatment programs are offered at three locations: Mount Sinai Beth Israel, Mount Sinai Roosevelt, and Mount Sinai St. Luke's:

The Addiction Institute of New York (at Mount Sinai Roosevelt and Mount Sinai St. Luke's)
General Addiction Services (at Mount Sinai Beth Israel)
Stuyvesant Square Chemical Dependency Services (at Mount Sinai Beth Israel)
Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program (at Mount Sinai Beth Israel)

With a continuum of inpatient and outpatient care, patients are matched to the services that best meet their needs, and they are assured continuity of care within its spectrum of services. As hospital-based programs, patients have access to state-of-the-art medical and behavioral health diagnostic and specialty services.

Substance abuse counseling services assist patients in understanding addiction and recovery, reducing ambivalence to treatment and increasing motivation for recovery. These services are committed to providing evidence-based comprehensive treatment services, incorporating multidisciplinary modalities and assisting patients in developing skills they need to establish healthy life styles. Outreach and education events are held to encourage and support families in learning about recovery and relapse prevention. Aftercare clinics and counseling are available for ongoing support after the patient has stabilized.
