Mission Statement

The Nassau County Department of Drug and Alcohol Addiction’s mission is to reduce the incidence of chemical use and abuse through prevention and education efforts directed toward the citizens and youth of Nassau County.  Appropriate treatment and rehabilitation for anyone wishing to stop abusing and live a fuller and more productive life is provided in partnership with the Nassau County Health and Human Service Departments and through a network of sub-contract programs that include hospitals, community-based organizations and school-based programs.  As the designated Local Government Unit (LGU), the Department   receives all Federal, State, and County funds for chemical dependency services and has the administrative responsibility of overseeing the activities of the contract agencies.   NCDDAA supports and fosters appropriate linguistic and culturally comprehensive approaches to treatment, education, and prevention.
