Midtown Center for Treatment and Research

About Us

The Midtown Center is a comprehensive not-for-profit outpatient program for the evaluation and treatment of chemically dependent individuals and their significant others. The program is licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) as a Medically Supervised Ambulatory Substance Abuse Treatment Program.

The Midtown Center now also has programs for combat veterans with PTSD, as well as for their spouses or significant others, in conjunction with The Headstrong Project.

As faculty of Weill Cornell Medical College, a world-renowned academic and research institution, staff take part in and are exposed to cutting edge research exploring the mechanisms and treatment of substance abuse. Clinical team members reflect a variety of rich and diverse academic backgrounds from the fields of medicine, psychology, social work and counseling with special interest and certification in the field of alcoholism and substance abuse.
