If you or someone you know is struggling with substance abuse or addiction, we can provide a safe place to get the necessary help. LEARN MORE
OCD
We all have our quirks, or we may do things “obsessively” that may seem odd to others, but this does not define obsessive compulsive disorder. In OCD, the obsessions or compulsions are time consuming (take over 1 hour per day) or cause significant interruption in social or occupational areas of life. OCD can be successfully treated with medications, therapy, or a combination of both. Click below to learn more about OCD and what we can do to help. LEARN MORE
Adult ADHD in NYC
Life can be stressful and complicated for any adult; balancing family obligations, maintaining relationships, juggling work responsibilities, etc. For individuals with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) it can feel amplified and overwhelming. Individuals dealing with undiagnosed ADHD often struggle at work, finding it hard to maintain organization and complete tasks. They also frequently run into problems in relationships, due to their impulsivity and difficulty following through on obligations. Adult ADHD can be easily misdiagnosed, but given the proper diagnosis and treatment, you can lead a happy life with a successful career and relationships. LEARN MORE
Bipolar Disorders
