Questions on what could have been done for Monteith are a little too late, but friends and family of those struggling with addiction could learn from his loss.

Dr. Steve discusses dealing with addiction along with Dr. Jill Backfield, Executive Director at the New York Center for Living.

New York Center for Living is Manhattan’s only family focused intensive outpatient substance abuse treatment center for adolescents, young adults and their families.  It addresses substance abuse, addictions, and in some cases, co-occurring disorders, that when left untreated, may complicate recovery.    NYCL is a unique recovery community that’s family inclusive.  And, it combines clinical services, care, and support with academic, creative and experimental therapies.  There’s a summer program and after school programs tailor-made for teens, 13-17, and young adults, 18-26.
