Central Intake Telephone Number:
NYC Health + Hospitals/Kings County provides both inpatient and outpatient services for patients with substance abuse problems. The inpatient program offers acute detoxification for individuals addicted to heroin or other opiates and alcohol, giving patients access to safe medical detoxification and referral to aftercare upon completion. Outpatient services are tailored to the needs of individual patients. Patients receive an assessment in our central intake unit in order to enable them to be placed in a specific program most appropriate for their needs.
The Center is a community-based agency that provides a comprehensive network of services, including an outpatient clinic, Halfway House, and Community Education and outreach, for the alcoholic/substance abuser and their families.
Our EVR program is a federal, state and city funded program designed specifically to provide academic and vocational evaluations, skills training, family services and job placement assistance to individuals with a history of substance abuse who are now in recovery and want to improve their quality of life. Our goal is to have our students re-enter their communities as skilled, productive and employed citizens.
The EVR Program is licensed by the New York State education Department as a Registered Business School and as a Private Vocational School. We are also approved for the training of veterans.
