The Ross Center’s outpatient Addiction Treatment program is only offered in our New York office. 

Most people who struggle with addictions are also impacted by mental health problems. Addictive behaviors can be influenced by anxiety, depression, trauma, or chronic pain. Treating these issues together has been shown to be the most effective way to create long-lasting change. We can help you (or your child) address the source and symptoms of your compulsive behaviors, providing you with insights and coping mechanisms that can help change your behavior and lead to better outcomes and an improved quality of life.

Addictive Behaviors that We Can Help:

  • Alcohol Abuse, Alcoholism, & Problematic Drinking
  • Drug Abuse (including Opioids and Prescription Drugs, Marijuana, Stimulants, Cocaine, Heroin, etc.)
  • Compulsive Gambling
  • Sexual Compulsiveness and Addiction to Pornography
  • Overeating, Binge Eating, Bulimia & Restrictive Eating
  • Excessive use of the Internet and Video Gaming
  • Vaping
  • Cigarette Smoking and Tobacco Use
  • Caffeine Addiction

A Team Approach that Gets Results

At The Ross Center, we offer a comprehensive approach to addictive behavior with a team of specialists who actively collaborate to ensure your recovery. In our private practice clinic, you’ll have access to therapeutic services, psychiatric treatment, group therapy, couples therapy and family therapy under one roof. Our providers and their interventions go beyond traditional addiction treatment methods and are based on proven evidence-based research. This makes our center unique and capable of addressing the whole person, not solely the addiction. We’ll customize a treatment plan so you can achieve your specific goals. We can also work with your current providers, schools, agencies, or the court system in aiding your recovery. In addition, we are able to provide a complementary service to fill in the gaps in your overall treatment when appropriate.

Comprehensive Array of Services:

  • Individual Treatment with Psychologists and Psychotherapists:

Our clinicians are experts in treating addictive behaviors, and have specialized training in treating addictions including alcoholism and substance abuse. With compassion and understanding they will address your addictive behaviors alongside any mental health issues and treat both concurrently. You’ll gain an understanding into your addictive tendencies and benefit from evidence-based interventions that will impact your thought and behavioral patterns. We use state-of-the-art treatment methods including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT),  Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Exposure Therapies to treat your anxiety and depression while confronting your primary addiction.

  • Medical Management with Psychiatrists Trained in Addiction Medicine:

You’ll benefit from the experience of board certified adult, adolescent, and child psychiatrists with specialized training in addiction medicine. They provide you with a comprehensive assessment to determine the optimal course of treatment and can offer medical solutions for anxiety, depression and other mental health disorders (such as OCD, Bipolar Disorder or PTSD). Additionally, they are able to prescribe Suboxone, Naltrexone, and other buprenorphine products to treat opioid addiction.

  • Family Therapy:

We work with the entire family, including partners, parents, and children, to help you achieve meaningful change throughout your life. Living with or raising a person with an addiction affects everyone, which necessitates the need for multiple methods of treatment.

  • Group Therapy:

Group therapy can be a very effective way to make changes in a supportive environment. Our groups are led by a trained addiction specialist and based on the principals of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Our groups are distinct in that they can focus on both addiction and the mental health disorders that often accompany addictive behaviors.

Support for Families

We also offer therapy services for partners and siblings, parent coaching, and Functional Family Therapy (FFT) for the entire family unit. We feel it is important that the most influential people in a person’s life be a part of the recovery process, as these people often suffer alone or without the tools to cope with the problems and feelings they experience. Family members learn effective communication, how to set helpful limits, and positive reinforcement strategies. This is another unique aspect of our process and practice.

An Effective Supplement to Traditional Treatment Methods

Many of our clients have been in recovery for some period of time, but have yet to explore the mental health issues that still affect their quality of life. We can enhance the process of recovery from a traditional treatment setting or psychosocial group (such as Alcoholics Anonymous) by adding our expertise when methods such as 12-Step programs or Intensive Outpatient Programs are not sufficient. Clients are assessed by our mental health professionals and given the proper diagnosis, upon which they are given the appropriate type of psychotherapy and/or medication.  Most addiction treatment settings are not equipped with enough qualified providers and services to address these individual needs. This is where The Ross Center fills that gap.

Assessment and Referrals

When necessary, we provide recommendations within our community and beyond to supplement our services. We have a strong network that includes residential treatment centers, intensive outpatient programs (IOPs), therapeutic boarding schools, sober living homes, nutritionists, wilderness therapy programs and medical providers. We also offer consulting services to parents who are exploring options to best help their children struggling with alcohol or drug abuse.  If we determine that you or your child need services we don’t offer, we can refer you to another trusted provider who can. It’s important that you are properly evaluated and sent to the right place for treatment, and provided with the support structures and services necessary to achieve long-term change.
