Chance for Change

Chance for Change, a state-licensed chemical dependency outpatient treatment program, located at The Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, provides treatment for homeless adults living with the challenges of substance use disorders.

Our small, welcoming clinic environment and "harm reduction" model connect with each individual’s desire to change in a collaborative, respectful and empathic environment. Individual and group therapy sessions focus not only on sobriety but also on helping our clients manage other life areas such as mental illness, chronic medical conditions, homelessness, unemployment and other life stressors. Our clinic staff members are trained substance use counselors and mental health professionals who utilize evidence-based practices to help clients realize their full potential and work toward recovery.
