Continuum of Care

A 12 Step philosophy is an integral part of the clinical program while group therapy, individual counseling, psycho-education and family involvement constitute the psychodynamic core of our treatment approach.

Realization Center is licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services which allows us to offer treatment from the most intensive outpatient level to traditional individually designed outpatient treatment. Realization Center stands apart in excellence in addictions treatment and to that end we offer 100 groups per week addressing all forms of addictive behaviors.

  1. Buprenorphine Maintenance Treatment
    Realization Center is a pioneer in using Buprenorphine, a drug newly approved to treat addiction to heroin and opiates, including prescription drugs. Buprenorphine reduces withdrawal symptoms, blocks cravings and makes the detox process more comfortable. Following your detox with Buprenorphine, Realization Center is able to continue maintenance and follow up.
  2. Partial Hospitalization Program/Day Program
    A combination of group and individual sessions which includes varying schedules from 1-5 to 25 hours per week depending on level of intensity required. In addition to the daily group and individual sessions, clients in treatment attend self-help (AA-CA-NA-OA) group meetings daily, on premises.
  3. Intensive Outpatient Treatment
    The Intensive Outpatient Program combines the flexibility of outpatient treatment with a structured curriculum where the client can learn new, adaptive behaviors while practicing sobriety and coping with reality. This program is available both days and evenings. Includes psychiatric evaluation and medication management as needed. Individual sessions will be scheduled on an as needed basis.
  4. Comprehensive Outpatient Treatment
    A less intensive program for the evaluation and treatment of individuals in trouble with substances, relationships or themselves who require minimum care. Participation may include psychiatric evaluation, medication management, individual counseling, group therapy, psycho education and family involvement.
