The Only Private, Free-standing Residential Treatment Center, Urban Recovery, Opened their Doors this Week in Brooklyn, NY

BROOKLYN, NY / ACCESSWIRE / January 11, 2019 / Urban Recovery (UR), a state of the art recovery center, opened its doors to clients on January 7th, 2019. Led by a best-in-class medical and clinical team, including addiction psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, recovery counselors and wellness professionals, Urban Recovery provides bespoke treatment plans, a high staff-to-client ratio and an extensive continuum of care that includes customized treatment to meet the needs of individuals and families. Through the highest caliber of addiction treatment, UR develops goals in treatment and after treatment that support recovery, self-efficacy and an improved quality of life.

Located in Red Hook Brooklyn, one of the most creative and dynamic neighborhoods in NYC, Urban Recovery’s setting reflects the vibrancy of their clients, their families, and the cosmopolitan communities from which they come. The 5-level, 26 thousand square foot building houses 36 inpatient beds, including 6 detox-specific, providing inpatient and residential treatment for a myriad of conditions, with a primary emphasis on substance use disorders. UR also addresses underlying conditions such as anxiety, depression and trauma. Whether clients come from across the world or across the river, UR will work with them and their trusted providers to make a successful, healthy and stable transition back to their life.

''In a world that's become defined by division, we've created a community here in Brooklyn that's based on the healing power of human connection,'' notes Dr. Paul Hokemeyer, Senior Clinical Fellow at Urban Recovery. ''Yes, we have effective clinical tools, but the system in which these tools are delivered to the human beings and families who trust us with their challenges are different from the systems found in other, larger, more remotely located facilities. Our delivery system is intimate and nimble. It provides a physical and emotional frame within which our clients can tap into their power to engage in not only reparative and curative outcomes, but to optimize their functioning in the world.''

Urban Recovery grew from a vision of delivering excellence in an over-saturated recovery market and the treatment focus broadens the lens that has historically been found in the larger, corporate and not for profit treatment doyennes to include the patient's relational context. This focus is grounded on well-established data that shows that while addictions thrive in isolation, they are cured in relationship with other human beings. Central to this work is providing the patient's family, however that is defined, with a curative experience and moving the entire collective into an optimal state of functioning.
