(HICKSVILLE, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Arnold W. Drucker (D - Plainview) joined his colleagues in government at CN Guidance and Counseling’s Hicksville headquarters on Friday, Feb. 3 for a legislative town hall focused on addressing the many facets of Long Island’s ongoing addiction and behavioral health crises.
During the event, CN Guidance discussed the newest element of its agency - Long Island’s first Intensive Crisis Stabilization Center (ICSC), which is co-licensed through the New York State Offices of Mental Health (OMH) and Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS). The facility offers 24-7 access to walk-in care for people struggling with addiction or experiencing any form of a behavioral health crisis.
“For more than 50 years, CN Guidance and Counseling has been on the cutting edge of assisting loved ones and neighbors who are struggling with addiction - and the launch of their Intensive Crisis Stabilization Center is a vital extension of this important legacy,” Legislator Drucker said. “Thank you to Jeffrey Friedman and the entire CN Guidance and Counseling team for all you do on a daily basis to bring life-saving initiatives to fruition.”
