Arnold M Washton, PhD, Psychologist in New York
I provide personalized individual and group therapy for substance abuse and related mental health problems in executives, professionals and other high-functioning adults. My discreet private offices are located in midtown Manhattan and in Princeton NJ. My treatment approach is flexible, sophisticated, and results oriented. I work with individuals who want to completely stop using all substances and those who want to learn how to moderate their drinking. Feel free to contact me to schedule your private consultation and evaluation.
As an addiction psychologist specializing in the treatment of alcohol and drug abuse since 1975, a major focus of my work has been to develop individualized treatment approaches that address both the addictive behavior itself and underlying psychological/emotional issues.
In addition to individual therapy, I offer patients the unique option of participating in small private support groups that are held at lunchtime and in the evening after work one to three times per week.
