Outpatient Chemical Dependency - Substance Use Disorder

At Long Island Community Hospital, we understand it takes courage to pick up the phone and say, “I need help.” That’s why we are here: to help…quickly and without judgment.

Our comprehensive outpatient substance use disorder program offers compassionate, personalized, patient-centered care to work with you on your addiction treatment goals. Using evidence-based practices, proven interventions, medication-assisted therapy, and behavior modification, we help people with substance use disorders help themselves. We’ll help you consider your choices, establish goals, assist you in meeting challenges, and support you in finding solutions.

Licensed by the New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS), as an Outpatient Chemical Dependency program, our expert team provides assessments, education, treatment, and connections with other community services for patients 18 years and older. To receive services, patients must have a substance use disorder diagnosis. Families and significant others are encouraged to participate in the patient’s treatment.

We offer flexible scheduling tailored to the needs of the individual. We’ll get you in quickly for an assessment and appointment with our doctors. Individual, family, and group counseling is available, and services can be provided in person, via telehealth, or by phone when needed. Most insurance plans are accepted, including Medicare. Additionally, we offer sliding scale fees for self-pay patients.
