We Can Help
There is a crisis facing our nation, and it’s robbing our children of their futures. Addiction rates are growing exponentially; from opioid addiction to alcohol dependence and substances no child should be consuming, an entire generation needs guidance to navigate the complicated realities of modern life.
Whether you’ve just started researching addiction, are looking for treatment for someone you love or are in need of a referral, we can help.
Coordinated Recovery 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.Discover More About How We Heal

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. We also take out-of-network insurance benefits.
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.
