WHAT SETS US APART
Treating for over 30 years
We were founded in 1984 by David M. Ockert, PhD. Our success lies in our patient's treatment outcomes.
Ideal for those who need to remain strictly private. We are licensed professionals recognized for our excellence and experience in working with a diverse population. Our agency provides a professional, modern and comfortable environment in midtown Manhattan.
We treat the whole you
We have a team of specialists to address your needs. They target all symptoms of substance use, both short and long-term, to help you adapt to your environment and stay sober.
Withdrawal Management and Stabilization
We can detox from: alcohol, opioids (such as heroin, Methadone, Buprenorphine, painkillers), benzodiazepines (such as Diazepam and Xanax), or a combination of the above.
We work to treat the whole person by addressing your substance-related social, psychological, and biological needs. We combine individual and group therapy, medical appointments, and more to help you accomplish your individualized goals.
A UNIQUE OPIOID WITHDRAWAL PROTOCOL:
The Parallax Center utilizes a unique opioid withdrawal protocol that avoids the use of opioid medications and allows for complete abstinence from any form of opioid medication. This allows for the induction of naltrexone, a non-addictive medication which can more rapidly restore normal brain function and thereby help to heal the opioid-impaired nervous system. Find out more about this and what patients have to say on our detoxification page by clicking here. Read our about our published results by clicking here.
