Treatment Philosophy

Here at Central Park Recovery, we understand that in order to treat addiction, there is more to it than reducing or abstaining from substance use. Substance use is the underlying condition (symptom) of a bigger problem. Our mission is to provide quality care in treating addiction as a chronic disease, as well as, build on the patient’s strengths. We work closely with each patient to determine a thorough, individualized treatment plan, tailored to his or her specific needs to get them started on their road to recovery. Central Park Recovery will provide a confidential, safe, and supportive environment to assist the patient in starting on their goals. We will be here to help you Re-Set, Re-Focus, and Re-Start your LIFE!

About Our Program

Central Park Recovery’s treatment approach is specifically centered to the individual’s unique problems and needs, which is crucial to his or her success. In addition to our qualified health professionals, Central Park Recovery is overseen by our medical director Dr. Raul Ulloa, MD who is proficient in addiction medicine and Mary Nickerson, PA-C who is well versed in treating both addiction and mental health disorders. While treating patient’s, we also provide support for family members. Significant others who have been impacted by this disease can also seek treatment and support, even if the patient is not enrolled in our treatment program.

Central Park Recovery believes in incorporating the use of evidence-based practices, which increases the individual’s outcome for success such as: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Moral Reconation Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Trauma Informed Care, and other person centered approaches, as needed. Along with this, our main goal is to diminish the barriers to treatment access for example: same day evaluations, rapid MAT induction, and evening and weekend hours. After an extensive evaluation, the patient and clinician will develop a preliminary treatment plan that will address the individual’s needs to meet them where they are currently at. In addition to the services listed below, we will coordinate treatment with outside referral agencies including but not limited to: Drug Court, Parole, Probation, CPS, DSS, TASC, Housing Programs, Crisis Stabilization, Emergency Room Departments, Primary Care Physicians, and Psychiatrists.

Treatment Approaches

At Central Park Recovery we recognize that there are many different dimensions or types of addiction. Our clinical approach is aimed at creating a continuum of treatment services for each stage of the recovery process. By integrating a variety of therapies and treatments into our approach, we focus on meeting the specific needs of each individual patient, while addressing their underlying issues that many have led to the onset of their substance use. The purpose of each approach is to provide each patient with the tools needed for long-term recovery/ sobriety.
