Entrance to the Phoenix Life addiction treatment and rehabilitation center in Brooklyn, New York City.

This brand new, state-of-the-art facility is just steps away from the East River waterfront and the newly developed Brooklyn Bridge Park. This building is the first of its kind in New York, and was designed to reflect the modernity and historic relevance of the neighborhood. More importantly, every aspect of the design was created to ensure we provide the best care for our patients.

Addiction Treatment in New York City

Our Riverwalk facility reimagines and modernizes clinical care for people struggling with addiction, providing a much needed rehabilitation solution for New Yorkers. It’s the only free-standing drug and alcohol rehab center in NYC that will offer the full continuum of care — detox, residential, and outpatient — at one location.

The design of the space utilizes natural light and elements of nature along with modern, clean design to provide an uplifting and positive atmosphere. Elements of it, such as our front desk, were crafted by Brooklyn artisans to truly capture the look and feel of Dumbo and represent our commitment to building healthier communities.

Lounge in the Women

Designed for Recovery

Every aspect of Riverwalk is designed to support and enhance recovery. Dedicated accommodations for men and for women include relaxing and comfortable spaces to gather, such as the lounges or creative expression room. Patients will also have access to a serene and private outdoor space in the enclosed courtyard.

Lifestyle changes are a key component of supporting recovery. We offer a fully equipped gym, along with nutritionally optimized meals created by a renowned chef from the Culinary Institute of America, designed specifically to reduce cravings and contribute to the health of the brain and the body.  These and many other elements of the treatment program – such as aromatherapy and curated content on e-readers – have been designed to help our patients live healthy, happy and productive lives.
