Family Service League provides critical care and guidance to Suffolk county individuals, families and groups struggling with grief, crisis or disaster.
COTI helps individuals struggling with addiction and their loved ones, and provides comprehensive substance abuse and mental health assessments, diagnosis and medication management in coordination with the development of a treatment plan. The mobile recovery team works with individuals, in the community or in their homes, to address a wide spectrum of needs including medical, housing, financial, employment, legal and family issues. Recovery peer advocates are at the core of this program as they use their experiences to inspire, connect and support individuals struggling with addiction.
This team responds to traumatic incidents, assessing the needs of individuals and groups who have experienced a critical event in the workplace, school or community. C-CAT is often deployed within hours of first contact and uses debriefings, defusing and one-on-one intervention to help mitigate the impact of traumatic situations.

DASH is a 24/7 voluntary program for individuals in a crisis situation who are feeling overwhelmed due to substance use, mental illness and/or other life stressors. The program features a mobile response team of licensed professional experts who will come to your community and conduct an assessment, develop a safety plan, and if necessary, recommend outpatient services or a higher level of care. DASH also features a crisis hotline that provides telephone triage, clinical assessments and therapeutic support.
Families need help immediately after a suicide. Family Service League’s Joe’s Project provides individual, family, and group counseling, as well as support to organizations and communities affected by the loss of someone who died by suicide. This unique suicide response program has four components:
Have you experienced the severe traumatic loss of a loved one to suicide?
You are not alone. FSL offers hope and help for loved ones left behind.
Surviving suicide loss is possible. Family and loved ones who meet with a counselor often feel less alone and less isolated. Upon request, FSL’s trained professional staff will visit your home, school, business, or another location of your choosing to help you walk through the excruciating days and weeks that follow your loss. If you prefer to wait, assistance from a Joe’s Project counselor may be arranged anytime you feel ready. Our team may also provide or recommend resources for follow up counseling, support groups, and referrals for additional services.
There is HOPE after the traumatic loss of a loved one to suicide.

FSL’s Community Crisis Action Team (C-CAT) responds to traumatic incidents, assessing the needs of individuals and groups who have experienced a critical event. Such incidents can happen in the workplace, the school, or in the community. Before the creation of Joe’s Project, there was no organized response in Suffolk County to assist those who had lost family or friends to suicide. This program was designed to fill this void. Joe’s Project is made possible by a grant from the Suffolk County Legislature. Joe’s Project is named in memory of Joe Maiorella, who died by suicide.
