Dr. Arnold M. Washton
Dr. Arnold M. Washton is a widely recognized addiction psychologist and book author offering private consultations and personally customized treatment for discerning clients who want discreet sophisticated care. Known for his engaging clinical style and ability to think “out of the box”, Dr. Washton has a long track record of success in providing individualized treatment — a refreshing alternative to traditional “one size fits all” addiction treatment programs. His unique approach is delivered with unfailing respect for each person’s individual needs.
Dr. Washton’s practice does not accept insurance, enabling the highest level of confidentiality, privacy, and personalized care.
He provides harm reduction therapy for clients who want to cut down on their drinking rather than give it up entirely and abstinence-based relapse prevention for those who want to maintain abstinence from alcohol and other addictive drugs.
Dr. Washton has specialized in treating alcohol and substance abuse for over three decades. He has served on the faculty of NYU School of Medicine and directed several nationally-recognized addiction research and treatment programs in both New York and New Jersey. He has also served as substance abuse adviser to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, professional sports teams, and special committees of the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. He has published nine books and over 100 journal articles.
