The Office of Mental Health, Chemical Dependency and Developmental Disabilities Services provides satellite, chemical dependency services for probationers at the Nassau County Department of Probation.
The Chemical Dependency Counselor collaborates with Probation Officers to screen probationers for alcohol and substance use problems, determines the level of care needed, and engages them in appropriate treatment. The counselor also provides crisis intervention and referral to substance abuse acute care and crisis services and meets with the family members of probationers to apprise them of available resources. In addition the counselor refers eligible probations for health home services.
