What’s New:

Hello Long Island!

We hope you have had a great couple of weeks.  Winter is here and we are excited about all the activities and reoccurring meetings that have started back up.

We’d like to thank Nicole Carey and The Family Treatment and Recovery Center, who were gracious enough to have us come and facilitate our Problem Gambling 101 training at both their Hempstead and Hicksville locations.  During the training we learned that THRIVE centers serve as “peer-run” facilities, which is a great way for those who found success in recovery to give back and help others.

We also had an amazing online training on screenings and assessments with Dr. Rugle. She is a wealth of knowledge and our clinicians had a great time learning from her.  Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook for updates and upcoming events!
