The South Shore Child Guidance Center’s C.A.R.E. Center (Children’s Addiction Resource & Education Center) provides chemical dependency treatment to individuals identified as substance abusers, significant others, and loved ones with special emphasis on children of substance abusers.

It is our belief that substance abuse is a disease that poses serious social and psychological problems to our society. It affects not only the substance abuser, but their families as well.

Research has shown that children of substance abusers are more likely than other youngsters to suffer a variety of physical, mental, and emotional health problems.

Services are offered to adolescents and adults with chemical dependency problems. The C.A.R.E. Center offers chemical dependency education, individual/group counseling, and a DWI Offenders Program.

South Shore Child Guidance Center is sponsored by the South Shore Child Guidance Association, Inc., and is a member agency of Long Island’s United Way, and a licensed and funded agency of the Nassau County Department of Mental Health, Chemical Dependency and Developmental Disabilities, New York State Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse.
