YES Community Counseling

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.

In spite of our determination and motivation, we have not been able to embark on any fundraising activities which we know will have a profound impact on our ability to continue the scope of all our services.  In an effort to use all our resources, we have developed a campaign which we will be rolling out through social media.  Not much fluff … just an open, honest and direct appeal for help.  We are calling the campaign….STEP IT UP FOR YES.


YES is now offering Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to individuals with Opioid and Alcohol Use Disorder.

For more information, call us at (516)799-3203.
