About Us

Realization Center, Inc., a licensed outpatient facility by New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services, was founded by Marilyn J. White in 1984. In 1988, she partnered with Dianne Schwartz to serve the inadequately served addiction population at large. This commitment continues today and can be felt and seen by clients and visitors alike on their first visit to our Center.

We offer specialized treatment for food addiction, co-dependency, gambling, sexual compulsivity, as well as numerous emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, sexual trauma, family of origin issues, domestic violence, relationship and work related difficulties, as they relate to the chemical dependence.

What’s Different About Realization Center

We provide a respectful and dignified, non-institutional setting, where a personal course of treatment is developed jointly by the dedicated clinical staff and you, the client. Our collaborative team approach includes family, friends and the workplace and provides a total recovery support system.

We offer flexible hours, a 24-hour hotline, crisis intervention, on-site 12 Step meetings, over 100 groups, individual counseling, and programs for family and loved ones. In an intimate and safe environment with the help of caring professionals, addicts are empowered to take charge of their behavior and their lives.
