The YMCA of Long Island does not only tackle the physical wellness but also the emotional wellness of the individual, family and community.

This includes those who are struggling with their use, misuse or abuse and/or those whose lives have been affected by someone else’s use.
Reasons for Referral for an Adult
Addiction is a disease. Nonetheless, individuals are still responsible for their actions and must learn to address their problems. While there is no “cure,” treatment can and does help people regain control of their lives and escape from the downward spiral of addiction.
Reasons for Referral for a Youth
The stresses of the teen and young adult years can make youth especially susceptible
We draw on what works.
Because we are committed to providing the right care to the right person, our services are not based around a single treatment philosophy. Our diverse staff includes licensed social workers, licensed mental health counselors, credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselors, a psychiatrist, physician’s assistant, and other trained advocates.
Our Services Include:
Family Connection — a key component of our service — is open to the community and is a network of parents, spouses, guardians, and other family members. This group meets monthly, providing a supportive venue where family members can learn new skills for dealing with the complex issues associated with raising children, youth in today’s challenges.
At the same time, we provide support and counseling to children and youth in group settings where they can practice and succeed in communication skills, decision making skills, empowering tools, self-reflection, and so much more.
Our Community Education program offers a variety of services, including visual displays, literature distribution, and our Speaker’s Bureau, which provides speakers for schools, community agencies, church groups, or any other interested community organizations. Presentation formats and topics can be tailored to meet the needs of any group.
The YMCA offers specialized services geared toward the needs of women. This program offers women-only group counseling sessions in which participants can address concerns such as domestic violence, family or parenting issues on their own terms. In addition, the program provides childcare services for our members with children.
YMCA Family Services is branch of the YMCA of Long Island, Inc. At the Y, we work to strengthen families and communities, and through program that foster Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.
