Mission & History
Who We Serve
The Smithers Training Center
|MISSION & HISTORY
Our mission is to provide quality and compassionate care to all those affected by alcoholism and other drug dependence.
Since 1967, St. John’s Riverside Hospital’s ParkCare Pavilion has been a leader in providing treatment for alcoholism and other drug dependence. St. John’s operates one of the largest and most comprehensive treatment systems in New York State and offers a full continuum of hospital inpatient through community based outpatient services.
In May 2008, St. John’s was proud to announce its affiliation with the Christopher D. Smithers Foundation, renowned since 1952 for its commitment to the prevention and treatment of alcoholism and drug dependence and for the recognition of alcoholism as a treatable disease.
In August 2008, the Smithers Center opened a dedicated women’s inpatient rehabilitation program to better meet the unique needs of women in treatment. This gender-separate, gender-specific program is the first of its kind in Westchester.
