Understand And Heal Addictive Behaviors
Whether it is alcohol, substance abuse or a particular compulsive behavior that is controlling your life, addiction hurts. It hurts you and the people around you. Trying to hide or minimize your addictive behaviors leads to other complications. Therapy leads to healing the roots of the behavior, establishing and managing routines to reduce and eliminate relapses, and overall personal growth to move beyond the addiction to a life worth living.
You Are More Than Your Addiction
Addictions can start off small, and quickly grow beyond our control. No one wants to admit they need help managing an addiction, but addiction is so much more than the substance or activity that is being abused.
With Addiction Treatment, we work to identify the underlying causes of your addiction, recognize the feelings and situations that may lead to relapses, and use evidence-based techniques to heal and to build life patterns that create lasting, satisfying change.

So we decided to ask 31 notable New Yorkers about their therapists and are publishing their referrals in their own words
Jewelry designer Pamela Love: “Elizabeth Lacy has helped me tremendously with anxiety and coping with the effects of childhood trauma. The progress I have made with her in only one year has been far greater than all the work I have put in over the past decade.”
