New Here- any recommended addiction therapists in NYC area ?

Hi all- I'm new to this website and very happy to have discovered it.  I am the mother of a 16 year old addicted gamer.  He is very bright, but has wasted the last 2 years of high school doing very little work and never leaving the house (much less his room) at all on weekends becuase he is always gaming.  He was recently diagnosed with ADD.  HE has a lovely therapist who is working with him on general issues, but I think I also need to seek out the prefessional help of an addiction specialist. I live in NYC -- can anyone recommend a therapist here ?

Many thanks!

Welcome nycmomma

Welcome nycmomma

I'm glad you found us.

There are 2 professionals who have registered on this site; that is not a recommendation but that is somewhere you may be able to start. See link below

You could try our face to face lookup and see what members are in your area; you could try to PM for information if their posts seem relevant to your situation

Also there is a search box at the bottom of the page to use with key words for your son's condition that may help you find parents

Maybe someone can come up with a recommendation for you.
