Accredited by the Joint Commission (JCAHO), LICR provides heroin detox and heroin inpatient and outpatient treatment programs that offer an array of individualized therapeutic services. Our heroin detox and rehab treatment plans are effective and results oriented.
LICR’s history is quite unique. It started in the late 1980’s when our founder, Jack Hamilton, propelled by his hope for life and his strong belief in addicts helping other addicts, felt the he need to do something to help others who were struggling with addiction. By bringing addicts home, providing them shelter, meals, and guidance through the facilitation of AA and NA meetings, Jack started a dynamic and lively recovery community in New York that resulted in bringing Narcotics Anonymous meetings to local NY communities.
In 1995 Jack, alongside with another specialized addiction treatment professional who shared the same vision of compassion he had, established Long Island Center for Recovery. Now that you know more about our background, we hope you understand why we strongly feel we are different from other drug rehab facilities. Our principal goal has always been to help as many individuals as possible to find their path to recovery and long lasting sobriety.
