A walk-through of Long Island’s first recovery center before its grand opening in March of 2017 with FCA’s Dr. Jeffrey L. Reynolds, Ph.D. and LICADD’s Steve Chassman, LCSW, CASAC (Email). THRIVE (A Center for Transformation, Healing, Recovery, Inspiration, Validation and Empowerment) is a collaboration between Family and Children’s Association (FCA), Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (LICADD), Long Island Recovery Association (LIRA) and Families in Support of Treatment (F.I.S.T.) to combat the heroin epidemic on Long Island. This project was made possible by funding from the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS).
For more than 60 years, LICADD has successfully delivered evidence-based programs designed to prevent and treat substance abuse and addiction. LICADD offers crisis intervention, screenings, brief interventions, referrals to treatment and several family and parent education workshops to help Long Islanders struggling with the effects of addiction. Through our Open Arms, EAP Program, LICADD has provided targeted solution-focused support to companies all along the East Coast, serving over 60,000 employees and their families.
LICADD is Long Island’s premier non-profit agency providing life-saving alcohol and drug prevention and intervention services to at-risk children, individuals, and families across the region. With offices in Mineola, Holbrook and Riverhead, LICADD conducts evidence-based prevention programs, community outreach initiatives, and a mentoring program for children of incarcerated parents and public policy advocacy.
