Since 1980, we have provided the Staten Island community with comprehensive prevention and treatment services that promote the development of spirit, mind and body.

Our state-licensed outpatient program includes treatment services for adults and older teens, prevention services for at-risk youth, and counseling services for children whose lives have been affected by a family member’s addiction.

If you, a family member, or someone close to you is struggling with alcoholism or a substance abuse problem, don’t wait to call. If we don’t have a program that’s right for you, we’ll guide you to one that is.

Stop by our South Shore or North Shore locations.
