Welcome to Fifth Avenue Psychiatry

Fifth Avenue Psychiatry is a unique, private psychiatric practice located on the Upper East Side of New York City, specializing in both the discreet outpatient treatment of alcoholism and addiction in professionals, and what are often the underlying causes of addiction: anxiety disorders, depression and ADD/ADHD.

Our approach to chemical dependency is different from any addiction treatment program in NYC. Our doctors provide confidential, individualized, comprehensive care in one setting that is tailored to the individual. Our emphasis is on the integration of a psychotherapeutic approach with a limited and careful use of medication. Unlike many psychiatrists that only prescribe medication or programs that can only offer therapy, our practice is based on the research proven fact that patients who require mental health care respond best to a combination of therapy and medication. At Fifth Avenue Psychiatry, you do not have to be referred out to someone else for "medication management".

The experienced team at Fifth Avenue Psychiatry specializes in individualized treatment. Rather than try to fit you into a previously designed and rigid alcohol or addiction treatment program, we will collaborate with you and tailor your program to your needs and lifestyle. Addiction and alcoholism are addressed in a holistic way targeting compulsive behavior and its underlying causes which often include depression, anxiety disorders and ADD/ADHD.

Using this personalized and collaborative approach we implement evidence based medication and progressive psychotherapeutic treatment modalities to address Alcoholism, Addiction , ADD/ADHD , Depression and Anxiety Disorders. Our diverse clinical staff is trained in a variety of treatment modalities.
