Individualized Office Based Treatment

Addiction is a complicated and multifaceted disease with biological, psychological, and social components. At Fifth Avenue Psychiatry, addiction is approached in an integrated manner. We believe an addiction-trained psychiatrist is the optimal professional to treat a disease with the scope of addiction.

As a medical doctor, a psychiatrist can truly understand and treat the biological underpinnings and physical side effects of addiction. As a trained psychotherapist, a psychiatrist can use evidence-based individual, family, and group therapy modalities to treat the underlying psychological and social issues, as well as the psychological and social aftermath of self-destructive addictive behavior. As a psychiatrist, double boarded in both Psychiatry and Addiction Psychiatry, Dr. Glazer can fully evaluate, understand, treat, and coordinate care for addicted persons.

New and exciting evidence-based treatment modalities and the development of new medications have now allowed for all stages of treatment of addiction to be conducted in an outpatient setting. At Fifth Avenue Psychiatry, we have taken addiction treatment to an even higher level – a comprehensive treatment of addiction in a private, confidential psychotherapy office located on Manhattan’s upper east side.
