New York State opened a crisis stabilization center in Suffolk County for 24-hour engagement, assessment, and referral to services for people in mental health or addiction crisis.
“The development of the DASH program and related integrated crisis services represents the culmination of great collaboration and vision which will, in an unprecedented way ensure that those in need will receive the right services, at the right time and in the right location”, said Dr. Jeffrey Steigman, chief administrative officer at Family Service League. “This model will be truly diversionary, preventative and recovery focused and will change the landscape in Suffolk County”.
If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, you can find help by calling New York state’s toll-free, 24/7 HOPEline at 877-8-HOPENY (877-846-7369) or by texting HOPENY.
