About Ascendant New York

At Ascendant NY, we recognize that the journey to recovery is deeply personal and unique to each individual. Rooted in a holistic approach, we emphasize the interconnectedness of body, mind, and spirit in our therapeutic practices. Our commitment is to provide evidence-based care that addresses not only the symptoms of substance addiction but also the underlying challenges that contribute to it.

Understanding that detoxification is a crucial step in the recovery process, we strive to ensure that our patients experience this phase with as much dignity and comfort as medically feasible. Our tailored treatment plans are designed to resonate with the individual needs of every patient, ensuring that the detox process seamlessly integrates into ongoing care.

Our team, many of whom have personal experiences with addiction, brings a depth of empathy and understanding to their roles. We believe that compassion, support, and a genuine commitment to each patient’s well-being are the cornerstones of effective care. At Ascendant NY, you’re not just a patient; you’re a valued individual deserving of a transformative journey to wellness.

Kind and warm

Admissions was kind and warm. The accommodations were very clean and seemed well thought out for resident comfort and amenities availability. Group meetings are fun and allowed for open shares and activities.

Ascendant was very nice and the counselors are great. But, they are overbearingly strict. Don't expect much cell phone use or access to any other personal item...money, other electronics, etc. Also, after telling them multiple times I don't take any medication they would still wake me up after midnight trying to give me medication. I never felt like I had any privacy.

I had the opportunity to meet the entire staff, see the facility and view all of the inner workings. As an executive from another treatment facility, I can hands down say that Ascendant is comprised of the utmost professionals in this field and offers a distinguished, top notch program. I would highly recommend this program to everyone. Including my own family. Way to go Ascendant!
