Impact Counseling Services (ICS) is situated in a cottage in the village of Lake Grove, New York, in Long Island’s Suffolk County. In operation for nearly a decade, ICS provides outpatient substance abuse services for adults and adolescents. It also offers DWI services and an Early Intervention program.
Treatment and Staff
After an assessment, clients are given a treatment plan that includes group therapy one to four times each week and individual therapy as-needed, usually once a week, taking the intensity of treatment from the standard to Intensive Outpatient (IOP) level. The duration of treatment is progress-based, depending on the needs of the client, but most clients take at least three to six months to complete their treatment plan.
Groups are led by Master’s-level therapists and addiction counselors, including LCSWs and CASACs. Groups have fewer than 15 participants and use Motivational Interviewing (MI) and CBT. Clients with co-occurring disorders receive referrals to nearby mental health clinics for therapy and medication for their mental health diagnosis.
While ICS cannot require clients to attend 12-step meetings per New York State’s licensing guidelines, it firmly believes in their effectiveness and strongly encourages participation to whatever extent the client is able to commit.
ICS offers DWI programs and a 12-week Early Intervention program for those who wish to address their substance use but don’t meet the diagnostic criteria for outpatient treatment.
For nearly a decade, Impact Counseling Services has been providing the residents of Suffolk County with bilingual outpatient substance abuse treatment. Its long-term program and ability to offer clients up to four groups each week might make it an especially effective option for those ready to commit to intensive therapy and education in order to create lasting change.
