With clinics in New York City and Jericho, New York, Sacker Center is a small outpatient-based medical facility that provides treatment for clients struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. Unlike some outpatient behavioral health programs, Sacker Center’s treatment plans are highly individualized and can be made to fit any number of schedules.
Treatment and Staff
Before beginning treatment, clients go through an initial intake and assessment process to help the staff members determine their needs. Detox services are not provided on site but those in need can get referrals to nearby programs as necessary. While the specifics of each plan may vary, services available include individual, family and couples therapy with evidence-based practices like CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI), though the specific methods depend upon each client’s specific needs. Programs can also include gender-specific and culturally-sensitive treatment, with dual diagnosis support and medication management available as well. While 12-step participation is not required, those seeking nearby peer support groups can get referrals as necessary.
The staff at Sacker Center consists of an LMHC and an MD, with additional support staff.
Other than primary care services, the organization also provides extended care options including a medically-informed nutrition program, trauma and loss counseling and a flexible Life after Recovery program. Each of these can be taken as standalone programs or as aftercare options. Because one of the founders, Dr. Ira Sacker, has a background in treating eating disorders, the program also provides comprehensive services for those issues as well.
Overall, Sacker Center provides intimate, evidence-based treatment programs for clients struggling with a wide range of behavioral health issues. All outpatient plans are highly individualized and rely on a balance of evidence-based practices and medical oversight. In addition to its primary care options, the facility has a number of ancillary services available as well. While those seeking a more structured program with a focus on group therapy may want to look elsewhere, Sacker Center remains a strong resource for clients in the area.
