The Addiction Research and Treatment Corporation was organized in 1969 to address the unique problems of hard-core inner city substance users (minority addicts) and has provided prevention and interventions to every person that has crossed a clinical threshold. ARTC is a not-for-profit organization which is certified by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuses (OASAS) and an Article 28 Diagnostic and Treatment Center licensed by the NTSO of Health Systems Management. ARTC's comprehensive approach is designed to service the heroin addicts in the inner-city communities of New York. It's objective is to help its patients lead healthy, independent and productive lives allowing them to become responsible citizens who engage in a variety of meaningful activities.
Since it was founded, ARTC has grown into one of the nations's largest non-hospital based methadone treatment organization in New York State. Its seven community-based methadone maintenance treatment programs and two outpatient drug-free chemical dependency programs have provided a wide range of comprehensive health care and substance abuse treatment services to over 30,000 patients throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan. In the last decade, ARTC has added primary care and HIV/AIDS care services to offer patients the convenience of one-stop-shopping. In addition, it has contributed significantly to the management of HIV/AIDS care through its participation in various clinical trials. With its research on HIV and its treatments, ARTC is helping to improve medicine every day.
When the Addiction Research and Treatment Corporation was started from a single building at 937 Fulton Street in Fort Greene, it was never dreamed that it would become one of the largest and most successful providers of human services and health care in New York. Patient care is at the heart of our mission. An expert staff provides care that is compassionate, personal, and respectful of patients and their families. For more than 30 years, ARTC have provided addiction treatment and support services to persons struggling to achieve recovery. Patients benefit from the most up-to-date treatments medicine has to offer.
The Addiction Research and Treatment Corporation is committed to the health and well-being of its patients, particularly for those who otherwise would not have access to good health care. To ensure the best care for all patients, ARTC has developed individualized treatment plans and work together with their primary care and specialty doctors. With research on HIV and its treatments, ARTC is helping to improve medical care every day. – less–ZoomInfo
