Dobkin Center for the Treatment of Addiction

Addiction is a difficult and frustrating illness. Recovery is possible and Edwin Shaw Rehabilitation Hospital professionals offer help and guidance.

A confidential, comprehensive face-to-face interview begins the assessment process. A skilled chemical dependency counselor reviews medical, emotional, behavioral and familial characteristics related to drug or alcohol use. The interdisciplinary team determines the appropriate level of care for the client, which includes variable length of stay and individualized treatment planning. Individual marital and family therapy is also available to our clients and family members.
