Private Outpatient Addiction Treatment for Executives

Our approach to chemical dependency is different from any addiction treatment program in New York City. Our doctors provide confidential, 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".

Unique and Personalized Treatment for Addiction and its Underlying Causes

The experienced team at Fifth Avenue Psychiatry specializes in individualized treatment. Rather than try to fit you into a previously designed and rigid mental health, alcohol or addiction treatment program, we will collaborate with you - meet you where you are at- and tailor your program to your current needs with minimal disruption of your life.

For many people with alcoholism and addiction, co-occurring disorders are present and need to be addressed concurrently. Addiction and alcoholism are often a result of "self medication". We address addiction treatment in a holistic way, targeting compulsive behavior and its underlying causes which often include depression, anxiety disorders and ADD/ADHD.

Evidence Based Clinical Care

Using a personalized and collaborative approach we implement evidence-based medication and progressive psychotherapeutic treatment modalities to address alcoholism, addiction, ADD/ADHD, depression and anxiety disorders.
