Located in one of the world’s busiest cities, Realization Center, Inc. offers comprehensive, full-service addiction treatment on an outpatient basis in New York City.
Opened in 1986 by Marilyn J. White, a licensed substance abuse counselor, Realization Center, Inc. aims at inspiring clients to heal through a holistic approach by taking care of their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
The center offers specialized treatment for substance abuse (men, women, and adolescents), disorders related to food/eating, co-dependency, sexual compulsivity, and mental health issues like PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc.
Realization Center offers its therapy based on DBT, CBT and spiritual counseling mixed with educational programs as well as 12-step fundamentals.
Realization Center functions from two locations – Manhattan and Brooklyn. While the 12-step program is provided at both locations, specialized therapy group sessions are held at Brooklyn Center.
A stand-out feature of the Realization Center is the services offered to clients having specialized needs with a focus on veterans, LGBTs, Orthodox Jews, Latin Americans, chronic relapsers, and food addicts among others.
The Brooklyn Center provides nearly 90 groups every week. Orthodox Jewish clients are offered treatment programs that comply with Judaic tradition concerning addictive behaviors.
Realization Center offers programs for adolescents, men, and women suffering from substance abuse and mental health problems (PTSD, depression, anxiety, etc.). Even though the center does not offer a detox program at either location, Suboxone and buprenorphine treatments are provided as part of opioid de-addiction.
At each center, a customized treatment plan is developed by clinical staff after discussing with the client, focusing on their needs.
Clients at both centers undergo group therapy sessions anywhere from three to five sessions every week, while the individual session is held once weekly. All specialized group sessions are held at the center’s Brooklyn campus. Individuals with specialized needs are put into groups having clients of the same demographic.
For its adolescent clients, the center offers a program that is aimed at teens aged 13 to 17, while a young adult program focuses on serving clients aged 18-25.
Treatment for adolescents involves recovery and addiction education, family group therapy, and parent participation to enable the client to find ways to get back to a healthier lifestyle. Clients and their families are educated on recovery and addiction, relapse prevention. Clients undergo random drug testing.
Focusing on veterans, the center offers motivational enhancement therapy that aims to address chemical dependency and PTSD issues. DWI/DUI offenders have to complete an intensive 15-week course where they are educated and supported in their effort to recover.
Realization Center, Inc. boasts of a well-trained team that includes CADCs, LCSWs, social workers and mental health counselors (Master’s-level).
