Asian Outreach Program
The Child Center of NY also offers outpatient substance abuse treatment services through the Asian Outreach Program (AOP) at our Flushing** and Elmhurst* Clinics. AOP was developed in response to the unique needs of the Asian community. While we are open to people of all backgrounds, we are unique in that we have trained, professional staff who speak a variety of Asian languages (see above), as well as Spanish and English. Our highly trained bilingual and bicultural therapists are able to break through the language and cultural barriers that often prevent Asian immigrants and first-generation Americans of Asian descent from accessing needed substance abuse services.
AOP provides addiction treatment to children, adolescents, and adults, as well as counseling for significant others impacted by their loved ones’ chemical addictions. We also offer treatment for co-occurring mental health issues, family and school problems, psychiatric evaluations, medication management, and both individual and group treatment, including DWI groups. We accept a variety of insurances and have a sliding scale fee.
*Elmhurst Clinic has relocated to Woodside Clinic. All services can be accessed at Woodside Clinic via tele-health. Please call 718-458-4243 so that we can help you.
**The Flushing Clinic is temporarily closed for construction (anticipated opening: July 2021, with limited in-person services) so that we can ensure the site offers the best experience possible when clients come to us for care. All services continue to be provided remotely. If in-person services are needed, we are happy to accommodate those needs at one of our other clinic sites.
