Specialization

  • Medical Detoxification
    Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.
  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.
  • Animal Therapy
    Animal therapy (also called animal-assisted therapy and pet therapy) supports recovery and emotional wellbeing by helping people develop relationships with animals. Animal therapy can be a one-time or ongoing experience.
  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.

Phenomenal treatment center. I had been using for all around 19 years of my 30 years of living and Mt. Sinai was my first step as well as the most critical step to recovery. The staff got me on board and in treatment as soon as my parents reached out. This happened during the peak of Covid-19 and the treatment center made every way possible to get me in and start the steps to recovery. God Bless Mt Sinai.

Horrible. People selling and using drugs left and right, management corrupt and turning a blind eye to it when it\'s done by one of the \"favorites.\" The favoritism is disgusting, and there is not enough space on the entire server for all the horrible things I saw go down there and the horrible ways I and so many others were treated.

Let me first say I was forced by my wife to seek treatment. I resisted for months. I found Mt. Sinai because the reviews were amazing, and I was still skeptical but probably more scared. Mt. Sinai is even better than the reviews. My Dr. was incredible, the staff amazing. and every one was caring. Clinically, I became self aware of my behaviors and what issues they presented and how it affected my family. I spent 48 days at the mountain. Unbelievable experience. Thank you Dan and Jeff for building such an amazing place and about caring. You guys are the definition of angels and all the riches you guys are blessed with is because of how amazing you both are. I cant say enough great things about you and the rest of the staff. Right now I am 100 days sober and excited for the rest of my journey.
