Long Island Reach (Reach) founded in 1970 is a community based, multi-service agency providing a broad range of rehabilitative and treatment services to youth and their families, serving residents of Nassau County.

Long Island is in the height of the opioid epidemic. Every two days on Long Island three people die of drug overdose. A significant amount of the Long Island population either suffer from a substance abuse disorder or have been impacted by addiction. Long Island Reach is committed to working with a high-risk population of community residents of all ages and their families to engage and help them learn better ways to cope with their rage, their depression and their pain; to enhance self-esteem and to develop their self-awareness and to help seek creative alternatives to self-destructive drug and alcohol abuse, aberrant and anti-social behavior.
