Services: The CARES (Comprehensive Adolescent Rehabilitation and Education Service) at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s offers a wide range of services to address issues interfering with optimal functioning for teens and young adults. We provide a full range of targeted and integrated mental health and substance abuse services.

ReStart Academy provides a full-time, comprehensive, high school academic program on site. Students attend daily academic classes taught by New York City Public Schools teachers, and clinical staff work closely with the teachers to ensure that students are attending their classes, working well with teachers and peers, and participating. In addition to academics and therapy, CARES provides students with extracurricular activities such as a talent show, spelling bee, field trips to museums, yearbook club, music club, holiday parties, and prom.

Admission Process: Youth interested in CARES must call our intake coordinator for information and an application. You may fax, mail, or drop off the completed application. Our intake coordinator will review the application and schedule a comprehensive evaluation. Based on one’s motivation and readiness to make changes in their life, we will recommend the most appropriate level of treatment and design an individualized treatment program.
