New Rochelle, NY (PRWEB) September 25, 2009
Lexington Center for Recovery (LCR), a leading provider of alcohol and substance abuse treatment in the Hudson Valley, recently hosted an open house at 3 Cottage Place, New Rochelle, its newest Westchester County location. The open house commemorated the expansion and move from LCR's previous clinic.
The agency's 9,000-square-foot clinic incorporates its Generations program. Generations is an outpatient day treatment program specifically designed to treat alcohol and substance abusing women who are pregnant or post-partum and their families, including their children up to four years of age.
"We see an increasing number of headlines and news stories about drunk driving fatalities, underage drinking parties, drug possession and even proposed legislation to seize the cars of individuals convicted of DWI or DUI," said Adrienne Marcus, Ph.D., executive director of Lexington Center for Recovery.
"It is our sincerest hope that people in New Rochelle and the greater Westchester community will begin to understand the dangers and implications of alcohol and substance abuse and get the help they need and deserve," Marcus added.
Clinic services, which are geared toward anyone in the community affected by alcohol and/or drug abuse, include comprehensive assessments; group and individual counseling; evening intensive treatment; day rehabilitation; educational group services for Latino clients; adolescent and intensive clinic services; and vocational services. Psychiatric services are provided as needed. Additional services include meditation; nutritional and health education and counseling; and daily meals.
