THRIVE Recovery Community & Outreach Center

THRIVE is Transformation, Healing, Recovery, Inspiration, Validation and Empowerment


Since opening our doors in March 2017 as Long Island’s first recovery community and outreach center, THRIVE has been helping individuals and families find, maintain and strengthen their recovery. This free and non-clinical center opened in response to the heroin and opioid epidemic sweeping across the country. Due to the success of THRIVE Suffolk and the continued need for services and support in our communities, THRIVE Nassau later opened in June 2019 and THRIVE East End in November 2021.
