On Thursday, October 27, 2011 the Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (LICADD) celebrated the Grand Opening and Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony of its new Nassau County office with some of the most influential people in the Long Island community.
LICADD has taken a big step in Nassau and moved its Williston Park office to Mineola, where the agency has a fresh new look and twice the space. Top treatment providers across New York, corporate leaders, elected officials, LICADD’s Board of Directors, volunteers, and interns, all of whom make LICADD’s work possible packed suite 114 of The Lever Building to celebrate the organization’s success. “LICADD’s move to Mineola is the next step of a remarkable journey,” said LICADD Board of Directors Vice Chair Jeffery Capazzi. “The agency’s move is reflective of the fine work LICADD has established in order to ensure that the children and families in our community receive the help they need. From new programs and services, extended hours of operation, to public advocacy initiatives, this grand opening highlights the significant progress and difference LICADD has made in thousands of lives over the years.”
LICADD’s Grand Opening served as a networking opportunity and time for community members and the media to learn more about the agency. “We thank our devoted community partners and elected officials for coming out to support our continued growth and expansion,” said LICADD Executive Director, Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds. “It’s been a busy year for LICADD as we’ve scrambled to meet the increased demand for services, but we’re doing it and have great plans for 2012 and beyond.”
