GOALS & OBJECTIVES
Five Towns Community Center’s Counseling Service’s mission is to provide the community with well-trained professional staff, abreast of the latest research findings, to deliver cutting-edge drug and alcohol treatment modalities to meet the needs of those seeking assistance for themselves, a loved one, a family member or friend where substance use has interfered with employment, health, education, family, self image, relationships and life in general.
Five Towns Community Center Counseling Services is a New York State OASAS Certified, medically supervised, chemical dependence outpatient treatment program providing Substance Use Disorder treatment.
