Project Return Foundation

Project Return Foundation, Inc. (10 Astor Place, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10003; 212-979-8800), a nonprofit, nonsectarian, multipurpose humanservices agency, operates several New York City residential drug-free (RDF) Therapeutic-Community (TC) programs. The agency was founded in 1970 as a self-help and community center for substance abusers by two recovering addicts, Carlos Pagan and Julio Martinez. Project Return also operates a women's and children's treatment center, allowing children to remain with addicted mothers during treatment.

Under the leadership of president Jane Velez the agency diversified significantly. Project Return also operates an outreach, anti-AIDS education/prevention program, a medically supervised, drug-free outpatient program, and a modified TC-oriented health-related, facility for substance abusers who are HIV+ and symptomatic. The latter service is administered jointly by Project Return Foundation, Inc., Samaritan Village, and H.E.L.P., Inc. In total, nearly 1,000 men and women receive daily treatment and rehabilitative services through programs administered by Project Return Foundation, Inc.

All of Project Return's RDF TC programs are run according to the same clinical principles—they provide comprehensive, holistic, individualized treatment and rehabilitative services to the residents through interdisciplinary treatment teams. Interdisciplinary teamwork spans the entire length of stay in the TC programs, from admissions to discharge.
