Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Treatment Programs

FSL Family Centers treat individuals who are consumed by the disease of addiction. Substance abuse is a rising epidemic in our nation, affecting most Long Island families in one form or another. This is a disease that knows no age, race, gender, or socioeconomic status, and while there is no cure for substance dependency, there are a variety of treatment regimens that can channel the addicted person toward a path that’s free from substance addiction.

The purpose of the FSL Alcohol and Chemical Dependency Treatment Program is to provide comprehensive services for adolescents and adults.These programs provide screenings, assessments, treatment, and evaluations to assist in determining what level of care is needed to support outpatient recovery and maintain abstinence.

Dependency Programs include participants working to gain stability through:

                    • Group Counseling
                    • Individual Counseling
                    • Relapse Prevention
                    • Psychiatric Evaluations
                    • Medication Management

Specialty groups foster sharing common experiences and concerns with peers in a confidential and supportive environment. 
Discussion topics include:

                    • Addiction as a Disease
                    • Initiating Personal Growth
                    • Emotional Coping Skills

This treatment regimen includes both individual and group therapy. Our staff consists of a Medical Director, Administrative Coordinator, Clinical Supervisor, Licensed Social Workers, Certified Alcohol Substance Abuse Counselors, and support staff.

The Diagnostic, Assessment & Stabilization Hub (DASH)

The Diagnostic, Assessment & Stabilization Hub (DASH) program prevents individuals who are feeling overwhelmed due to substance use, mental illness and/or other life stressors from unnecessary utilization of emergency room visits/ inpatient hospitalization.

DASH is a crisis stabilization program (anticipated start date December 2018) sits at the center of a multi-pronged approach to crisis service delivery which includes a 24/7 crisis hotline and mobile response team. The program includes rapid assessment, triage, stabilization, a sobering unit, coordination of care, and linkage to longer-term outpatient services or, when necessary, to a higher level of care. Length of stay is up to 23 hours and 59 minutes. The program is an alternative to hospital-based services and is 100% voluntary. An Interdisciplinary team of professionals, paraprofessionals, and support staff will focus on early intervention, crisis resolution, and patient-centered care.

The Mobile Response Team provides crisis services in the community where the person is experiencing a crisis. The team will engage individual and/or family members, conduct risk assessment, develop a safety plan, and divert the need for hospital and emergency room visits. When applicable, staff will link individuals to necessary services and supports. Teams consist of a licensed professional staff member and certified peers.

Crisis Hotline (anticipated start date Dec. 2018) staff will provide telephone triage, clinical assessments, and therapeutic support. Appropriate referrals will be made which may include outpatient clinic services, mobile crisis response, crisis stabilization, and support services.
