Dynamic Youth Community, Inc. (DYC) was founded in 1970 as a Brooklyn-based day treatment program dedicated to the rehabilitation of adolescent drug users by comprehensive therapeutic means. Our success can be attributed to highly trained and committed staff, the participation of family and friends, and the belief that eliminating drug use is essential to the welfare of America’s future. We started serving a handful of youth in 1971, and by 1973 had an extensive program including an upstate residence serving over a hundred families.
DYC has three facilities: an outpatient program servicing 60 clients and a 16-bed community residence, both located in Brooklyn. In addition, our residential component located in Fallsburg, New York services 86 clients. Our programs are designed for adolescents and young adults. We provide a variety of services to the members of our program, including group, individual and family counseling, as well as a comprehensive vocational and educational program.
