YES Community Counseling Center

Making a difference today for a better tomorrow
YES Community Counseling Center continues to work hard to keep our services available during this health crisis.  This includes supporting those who have lost a loved one due to a substance use overdose. 

Once again, we will offer a Bereavement Support Group for anyone grieving the loss of a loved one due to a substance misuse via Zoom on Monday, September 14th at 7PM.   

If you or anyone you know would like to join the group, please email to request a Zoom invitation.   

You do not have to be alone in your grief because of social distancing, it may be a different kind of support, but we are here for you.

 Stay safe and stay well.

With Our Warmest Regards, All of us at YES

We are a community-based, non-profit organization that has been serving the residents of southeastern Nassau County since 1977. Though historically rooted in youth programs, we changed our name from Youth Environmental Services to better reflect the scope of services we provide, including school-based social work, counseling, drug/alcohol treatment, and a wide variety of other services.

As a result, we tend to those who are struggling with issues including but not limited to domestic violence, chemical dependence, family conflict, sexual abuse, marital/peer difficulties, bereavement, and health concerns.

We are making a difference today for a better tomorrow.

Our mission is to increase awareness about personal and community issues, prevent and treat substance abuse, and to promote healthy families and a safe community.
