Founder / Director
Valley Spring is a premier sober living residential community located in Manhattan. It was created to connect individuals struggling with addiction to the best recovery services offered in the New York City area. We provide a supportive, community-focused sober living space to inspire a feeling of safety and a desire for growth. We offer services to both residents and outside clients, and specialize in case management, intervention, recovery coaching, and mentoring. Our goal is to help our residents take the next step to new possibilities and a better life.
At Valley Spring, we understand the severity of addiction and the personal challenges along the road to recovery. We are guided by the single belief that “you alone can do this, but you cannot do this alone.” We recognize the path to sobriety is a gradual one. Residents are encouraged to draw strength through our support networks and through their loved ones to bring about the change they need. Our staff will help you or your loved one get back on track.
Having persevered through the recovery process himself, Dean Scaduto founded Valley Spring to share his experience and training with those struggling to beat the cycle of addiction. He graduated from Harvard University in 2012 where his coursework in Sociology reinforced the conviction that personal change doesn’t occur in solitude. Rather, it must be forged through meaningful social bonds. After receiving his degree from Harvard, Dean attended Columbia University, where he earned a Master’s degree in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution.
Dean went on to work part-time for the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) at their flagship location in Brooklyn. At OASAS, he earned his CASAC-T credential and provided counseling services to men and women who were severely marginalized and economically disadvantaged. Dean formerly worked as an international consultant for the United Nations Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) and the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN-Women). His leadership at the UN led to partnerships and meaningful dialogues that helped to bridge differences in culture, social status, and ideological orientation.

Residents at Valley Spring take part in a supportive community that will empower them to set new goals, discover new paths to fulfillment, and find new sources of happiness in lasting sobriety. As a Valley Spring resident, you will forge meaningful connections with new allies and lasting relationships with new friends. We take tremendous pride in creating a safe and comfortable space for residents to experience harmonious recoveries.
While the need for “alone time” can be healthy when in the right frame of mind, isolation can also prove dangerous and even fatal — especially in the early stages of recovery. The idea behind community sober living is to interact regularly with others. We often come to know ourselves through our relationships with others.
Valley Spring offers both independent and shared room options. Residents undergo random drug tests to ensure house safety and continued sobriety. We offer full amenities from gym memberships to spacious common areas to gourmet meals.
After living at Valley Spring, all residents can look forward to re-integrating into society and to leading happy, healthy, and productive lives. Residents will return to the world energized, and with the wisdom and strength that comes from confronting a struggle and overcoming it.
