Long Island politicians, hospital representatives, behavioral health providers, and community leaders joined Family Service League (FSL) to celebrate the opening of Long Island’s first 24/7/365 crisis stabilization center.  DASH is a community based site available to Suffolk residents who struggle with mental health and substance use issues.  Assessments, counseling, and care management intervention will be available for children 5+ years old, adolescents, and adults.  The goal of crisis intervention is to provide timely care while reducing unnecessary use of emergency departments, inpatient care, and criminal justice services.
