TUCKAHOE, N.Y. – The Maxwell Institute of St. Vincent’s Hospital Westchester in Tuckahoe has named a new community outreach and education coordinator.
Lillian Neuman, a credentialed alcoholism and substance abuse counselor, will provide a variety of alcohol and substance abuse prevention education and outreach services for the Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe communities. She has held supervisory and management positions in the field for more than a decade.
Neuman isn’t new to St. Vincent’s, having served as the program coordinator of the Excel program since 2006. The Excel program is an outpatient chemical dependency treatment program for adolescents. Under Neuman’s supervision, the program doubled in size over the past five years, and currently includes an evening component, “Excel by Night.”
The Maxwell Institute offers intensive outpatient treatment and education services for adults, adolescents and their families. Treatments include evaluations, clinic-level services, DWI services, individual and group psychotherapy and aftercare relapse prevention groups.
John Francis, a licensed clinical social worker at St. Vincent’s said that Neuman’s long history working in the field made her an obvious choice to assume this role at the Maxwell Institute.
“Lilly’s extensive experience in several areas made her the clear choice for this position – working with families, adolescents, schools, law enforcement and treatment providers,” he said. “What makes her really stand out is her ability to communicate and connect with young people and their families.”
