Drug Crisis In Our Backyard is a non-profit organization with a mission to provide awareness, resources, and support to individuals and their families affected by drug addiction. Founded in June 2012 by two families who lost their sons to drug overdoses, this grassroots community group of volunteers strives to assist other families in the area to prevent further tragedies. In doing so, they hope to foster a productive and inspiring dialogue around the issues of drug addiction, seek legislation to mandate prescription monitoring,  and advise families on how to find help and resources. 

The Phoenix House Academy in Westchester is a residential treatment program for adolescent boys and girls. The Academy provides an array of services including individual, group, and family counseling, along with evidence-based clinical treatment programs addressing each client’s individual needs. Teens at the Academy enjoy a rich campus life and attend an on-site school, where they can earn their diplomas or credits that can be transferred to their home schools.
