Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Levy "I completed my Pediatric internship, residency training and a Chief Residency at New York University Medical Center/Bellevue Hospital in New York City's lower east side.  At the time, in the early to middle 1990's Bellevue Hospital cared for most of the homeless and indigent patients in New York City.  As a trainee, I saw children and families plagued by poverty and all of its associated medical problems, including substance abuse.  Medical staff members at Bellevue were trained to care for the conditions that resulted from substance use, but little training was devoted specifically to the treatment of substance-related disorders.  During this time period, I became interested in child and family advocacy, and after completing a year as a Chief Resident in Pediatrics, I accepted a Dyson Advocacy Training Fellowship in the Division of General Pediatrics at Children's Hospital Boston.  After completing my training in 2000 I became the Director of Pediatrics for a new Adolescent Substance Abuse Program (ASAP). Shortly thereafter I received a career award from NIH to develop scientific skills in adolescent substance use disorders.  In the ensuing years both clinical and research arms of ASAP have continued to grow and flourish.

ASAP is committed to delivering science based, family oriented, developmentally appropriate care for adolescents and young adults with substance use disorders.  We are a "full spectrum" program, offering evaluation and treatment services for adolescents with a range of substance use experience, from new onset problems to addiction."
