Outpatient Substance Abuse Treatment- New Beginnings Community Counseling

New Beginnings Community Counseling Center has been providing comprehensive outpatient mental health services and quality care to the child, adolescent and adult population of the South Bronx since 1996. The program, staffed by psychiatrists, psychologists and social workers, operates under New York State and New York City Department of Mental Health laws and regulations.

Patients are assigned to a therapist for therapy and if needed to a psychiatrist for medication management. Patients are seen by appointment; however, in a time of crisis patients will be seen without an appointment. Emphasis in treatment is on individual and group psychotherapy, symptom management and pharmacotherapy. Case management is also an integral part of the program.

Patients are usually seen on a weekly basis. The staff adopts eclectic multicultural and sensitive approaches in an attempt to treat the patient in a manner that alleviates symptoms and improves functioning. Marital therapy, family therapy and play therapy are also offered.

New Beginnings Community Counseling Center provides a variety of specialty groups for individuals who are seeking help with depression, anger management, medication management, parenting skills and other issues. Groups are offered in both English and Spanish.

New Beginnings Community Counseling Center collaborates with other Narco Freedom, Inc. programs to assist patients with any other issues they may have, such as medical care, substance abuse, HIV case management and others.

Why Choose Us?



Since its inception, Narco Freedom and its affiliates have cared for thousands of addicts and their families; the current census is over 6,500 patients in treatment for alcohol and other drug addiction, and more than 30,000 patients, family members and community residents served through medical, mental health, case management, and other support programs.

Narco Freedom has extensive experience dealing with government agencies around licensing, rate setting, and compliance with regulations. The program is licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services and the Department of Health as an Article 28 facility; Article 31 license regulates mental health. The agency meets the requirements for licensing by the United States Drug Enforcement Agency, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Health Care Organizations.

Narco Freedom supports a full complement of service offerings to meet the needs of program participants. For example, Narco Freedom sponsors five methadone maintenance programs and three methadone to abstinence programs across the City. The Narco Freedom Methadone Maintenance Treatment component employs the "wrap around" model of care that increases continuity of care and protects vulnerable clients from "falling through the cracks".
