Our Mission: A Place to Recover from Addiction in New York
Back in 2007 it was difficult for executives, CEO’s, medical professionals and other business professionals to find an exclusive, private and comfortable place to discreetly recover from drug and alcohol abuse or addiction. California quickly became known for the place for “luxury rehab” but professionals in New York were finding it difficult to leave their jobs, families and other obligations and travel across the country to find help.
This is where The Dunes comes in… frustrated with the lack of care available on the east coast Founder, Joe McKinsey, saw the need for high quality drug and alcohol addiction treatment in New York. He knew that in order to offer the very best care available he would have to gather together the best team and offer the treatment in a comfortable, private setting. And, that is just what he did…
All of these years later The Dunes East Hampton remains the east coasts premier drug and alcohol treatment center and continues to offer not only residential treatment, but now outpatient treatment as well.
