Interventions and Recovery Coaching on Long Island

After an intervention and treatment program for someone living or vacationing on Long Island, it will be important for the individual to build a recovery community.

Long Island, NY has many vibrant recovery communities. Some people in recovery choose to attend 12 Step meetings in New York City.  New York has thousands of AA meetings every day. Commuters from Long Island often chose to attend a meeting in New York, first thing in the morning or over lunch time.  

Recovery on Fire Island and the Hamptons 

Fire Island and the Hamptons have tremendous and vibrant recovery communities. Of course they wax and wane with the seasons, but during warm months, it is easy to find 12 step meetings in Suffolk County. The Suffolk County Intergroup (AA’s Long Island ‘headquarters’) maintains a list of all current meetings.

Specific meetings in Cherry Grove and the Pines are listed at Gay and Sober. The most popular meetings in the summer in Bridgehampton, Southampton, East Hampton and Sag Harbor are also listed on Gay and Sober, most of these meetings are not specifically for LGBT indivinduals, but these meetings tend to be the most popular ones for everyone in recovery vacationing in the Hamptons.

Nassau County Resources

Nassau County Intergroup (the AA resource center) is located in West Hempstead, NY.  Nassau County has fantastic meetings in most of the cities including Glen Cove, Lynbrook, Oyster Bay and Garden City. There is even a meeting on the beach in Long Beach.
