Counseling Service of E.D.N.Y

https://www.csedny.org

Mission Statement: Our goal is to provide the highest quality of service. Our treatment approach is based on the disease concept of addiction. We see this disease as four-fold and fatal. It affects the abuser's physical, emotional, social and spiritual health and we believe that every effort must be made to intervene for the protection of our patients and their families, who are also greatly affected by this insidious disease. We believe that those who suffer from this disease can recover and become healthy
