DIGNITY: A program dedicated to recovery and sobriety for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities

Realization Center is one of the first outpatient programs in New York City dedicated to enhancing the lives and serving the needs of the  Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities. Established in 1984, we are proud to have been the first treatment program in the tri-state area to respond to the needs of this community. Realization Center has created and maintains an atmosphere of safety and comfort so necessary to anyone who is troubled and seeks assistance. Our mission is to reach out with a loving, empowering set of solutions.

A 12-Step philosophy is an integral part of the clinical program while group therapy, individual counseling, chemical dependency education and partner involvement constitute the psychodynamic core of the Center’s approach.
