Rebuilding lives, restoring hope.

The Staten Island YMCA Counseling Service offers hope to individuals and families whose lives have been turned upside-down by addiction. Since 1980, we have provided the Staten Island community with comprehensive prevention and treatment services that promote the development of spirit, mind and body. Our state-licensed outpatient program includes treatment services for adults and older teens, prevention services for at-risk youth, and counseling services for children whose lives have been affected by a family member’s addiction.

If you, a family member, or someone close to you is struggling with alcoholism or a substance abuse problem, don’t wait to call. If we don’t have a program that’s right for you, we’ll guide you to one that is.


Area of Focus:

We treat families, not individuals. We maintain open communication with every involved person who is willing and able to offer support to our clients. From children, to high-risk teens, to persons in recovery, we serve not only the client themselves, but also the people around them -- their parents, siblings, children and family members.

The Family Association -- a key component of our service -- is open to the community and is a network of parents, spouses, guardians and other family members. The group meets weekly, providing a supportive venue where family members can learn new skills for dealing with the complex issues associated with addiction. Family Association is an especially critical component of our youth services, and for clients in these programs. Parental participation is mandatory.

We also provide support and counseling to co-dependents (people whose relationships with the substance abuser have prevented him or her from focusing on themselves), and for anyone who is impacted by living with a chemically dependent person.
