Friends of Urban Recovery – Dr. Zachary Blumkin
Dr. Zachary Blumkin is a clinical psychologist who completed his internship and postdoctoral fellowship at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. He is the Clinical Director of the Columbia Day Program, a structured program that utilizes evidence-based interventions for people who are struggling with a range of psychiatric issues including co-occurring substance issues. Dr. Blumkin and his team are recovery heroes and friends with Urban due to their collaborative and empathic style that meets the patients where they are.
“Both the Columbia Day Program and Urban Recovery are committed to delivering gold-standard interventions to those who struggle with a range of psychiatric and substance use issues.” – Dr. Zachary Blumkin
Founded thirty-five years ago, the clinic offers a multidisciplinary, evidence-based group therapy treatment approach for adults aged 18 and over. Our Department is currently ranked #3 in psychiatry by U.S. News & World Report and our providers are leading clinicians in the New York metro area.
Our patients may experience depression, bipolar disorder, mood swings, anxiety/panic attacks, difficulty with sobriety, and other psychiatric disorders. We provide scheduling flexibility for those who want to stay involved in school, work or other activities. We collaborate with Columbia’s Lieber Recovery Clinic to help patients with executive functioning issues such as memory, concentration, and problem-solving.
In addition, we work closely with parents, siblings, and partners.
