Come tour our Center in the heart of Manhattan, meet some of these inspiring young people and see for yourself why we’ve gained such a reputation for helping adolescents and young adults find their path in life and begin to heal.

Our Programs

Coordinated Support for Adolescents, Young Adults and Their Families

New York Center for Living is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, established in 2007 to provide education, training and therapeutic services. We work with adolescents aged 13-17, young adults aged 18-30 and their families. People from all walks of life choose to attend treatment here, and they leave our center whole, healthy and facing bright futures.

We use evidence-based therapies designed around abstinence and the 12-step method, incorporated into holistic and compassionate treatment plans for our clients. Our treatment plans are fully individualized, based on your needs and history. Whether you’re seeking outpatient treatment, residential services or a medically supported detox, we can get you the care you need.

We’ve found that family involvement in therapy is crucial for successful long-term recovery. We encourage family members to participate in treatment whenever possible, and we offer parent-focused educational series and workshops.

Helping the Next Generation
of New Yorkers

We believe that effective treatment should be affordable for everyone who needs it. That’s why we keep our program cost at about 25 percent of what other treatment programs charge.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we do this through the ongoing support of an endowment that offsets our operating costs, allowing us to offer the highest level of care in one of the most beautiful facilities in the city while keeping attendance affordable.

  • A Rich History of Helping Others

    New York Center for Living is a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit treatment center, and we were the first intensive outpatient treatment program of its kind for adolescents and young adults in New York City. Over the years we have helped hundreds of clients to find not only lasting recovery, but a successful, fulfilled life that they and their family can be proud of.
