We believe there is a right way to treat people and that’s with compassion, respect and combined care. Whether our patients and adolescents are being given a second, third or 15th chance in life doesn’t matter––we are here to help make that chance a success. We treat the whole person, not just the addiction or the mental illness, and we are committed to advocating on behalf of those we serve.
START provides its self-referred patients with holistic, evidence-based healthcare that supports the start and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle. Our eight clinics include seven opioid treatment programs in the communities of Brooklyn and Manhattan. In addition to offering primary medical care and comprehensive HIV/AIDS (and HEP C treatment) services, we also provide mental health counseling to adolescents in the juvenile justice system.
