Westchester Medical Center is an alcohol and drug addiction treatment facility that is located at 201 South Avenue in Poughkeepsie, New York. Treating substance abuse involves multiple stages of treatment through a recovery program such as that offered by Westchester Medical Center. This can include group counseling, individual counseling, outpatient treatment, inpatient treatment, and medically assisted detox, among many others. Treatment programs are based on the individual themselves and are constructed to suit each patient individually. Just as every person is unique, so should treatment programs and that is exactly what patients will receive at Westchester Medical Center.

If addicts do not obtain the right type of support and guidance, they may find treatment to be very difficult as the thought of sobriety can seem so far-fetched. At Westchester Medical Center, professional counseling and guidance are provided to all patients aged Adult men, Adult women, giving them the strength needed in order to obtain a life that is free of drug and alcohol addiction. By altering the patient's outlook on life through addiction treatment, they will be able to stay positive throughout the duration of rehab.

The staff members at Westchester Medical Center have a mission and that is to give patients effective and quality addiction treatment so that long-lasting sobriety can be obtained. The path to a positive future starts on a positive foot and that begins at Westchester Medical Center. Confronting addiction is a difficult thing to do, but it is the most important step in the recovery process. Through professional counseling during the patient's time in treatment, patients will learn coping skills and trigger management which is imperative to the success of maintaining sobriety.

Maintaining sobriety on one's own is extremely difficult, especially when the addict has tried to go 'cold turkey' on their own. This is because it requires medically-assisted detox in order to properly and safely wean the body off of the substance of abuse. This way the body does not go through sudden withdrawal nor experience harsh side effects. Westchester Medical Center can provide patients with all of the necessary tools, treatments, and resources so that patients have every opportunity to succeed in recovery.

Helped more than Phelps. But DRs are liars. I was given an ultrasound and told they would only do a ultrasound inside me if they have no luck with the outside one. The lady doing my ultrasound didn't know this but I told her that the Dr said it to me after I was shocked that was what she planned to do. In the test papers I got back, they said I complained about the inside one and refused it. Which I did NOT. I would of let them do it, if like they said, they had no luck with the outside one. The DR I got at first, was rude and mean and told me he did not respect my pick to have an MRI without the contrast(I know how bad that stuff is and i prefer it not in my body.) I nicely told him he shouldn't be a DR if he cannot respect what someone does and doesn't want to do to their own body. He than told me to get out, that "you're leaving" and ran out of the room. What a immature child. Im sure he later regretted kicking me out after all the stuff found in my body even WITHOUT the contrast. But like I said, better than Phelps. I got all the tests I needed, and have to go back for more. The second DR I had( I was there from 12am to 12pm the next day.) was so sweet and really did care and want to know what was wrong. But, ASK FOR YOUR TEST RESULTS BACK!!!! There was a lot of harmful stuff noted on my MRI and ultrasound that was NOT said to me. i was told both came out fine, it wasn't until my BF, who understands all this medical stuff, over looked it and found the gaps in the DRs stories.

My first ever overnight stay in a Hospital was at WMC in 2016 for surgery to treat throat cancer. The level of care and compassion was amazing. Thank you to the doctors, staff, and all the care givers.

Was there 7/19/17 for a wound on my forearm. I Only waited a few minutes and was seen by a PA in fast track I believe it was called almost immediately. Very impressed by the treatment I received by every employee i encountered.

My mother went into Westchester Medical Center on 7/12 after having a stroke and brain bleed. The nurses in Neuro ICU were phenomenal. Eric Nietzel, Amy Aquilina and Jennifer Ferguson were with my mother a lot of the time that she was there. They treated her incredible. When I was unable to be there I knew she was safe and in good hands. Eric took time to give me literature on the type of stroke my mother had to give me a better understanding. Kind and compasssionate is an understatement about how these individuals are. I am forever grateful for these people. I don't think they know how much of a positive impact that they have on others. It takes a special kind of person to do what they do. They take time to talk to you to explain things. They are patient. They genuinely care and take pride in what they do. Michelle NP was also great. She took time to talk to me anytime I had a question and answered them honestly. I can not thank these people enough. They left such a positive impact on myself my brother and most importantly my mother.

Today was the second time attending this clinic and I really liked it, everyone really kind and really professional and even the nurses or doctors in training were really good. I read some reviews saying that it's a teaching hospital I could somewhat agree with that but the doctors are still with you training the new generation of doctors or nurses. How could new doctors be doctors if they have no experience?

The treatment my brother received from the emergency room staff, Dr. Nurses, Technicians, Aides for severe pain from his cancer was truly, truly outstanding.

First off...its a teaching hospital. So a lot of the follow up is done by medical residents, not necessarily the doctor that performed the procedure. My father spent almost 2 weeks total in both the surgical ICU & Neuro ICU. These areas really need to be made larger. The rooms are claustrophobic. They are currently building a new ambulatory surgery center. The visitor parking fills up rapidly. I'm not sure if there are any plans to build a multi level garage, but one would definitely be needed once the surgery center is completed. Larger signs are needed to remind visitors to take the parking ticket inside with them. There is only a small notice on the ticket machine. Payment for parking is done at a kiosk in the lobby.

After spending 2 hours of pain waiting in Vassar Hospital ER we came to Mid-Hudson Regional and in about 2 mins of being there I was taken to a room. 5 minutes of being in the room the doctor came examined me and gave me the necessary treatments to cure my swollen lip. I was in and out in about 30 minutes with my prescriptions ready to be picked up at my pharmacy the next day. One of the best cares I have ever received.
