Your Opinion Matters: Help Protect Youth In Our Communities

Nassau County residents know all too well about the dangers of substance misuse as the opioid epidemic continues to destroy families and lives throughout our neighborhoods. Your help is imperative to find the best ways to keep our youth safe and healthy.

YES Community Counseling Center’s Partnering in Action Change for Tomorrow (PACT) asks all adult residents to participate in an anonymous survey about their knowledge, attitudes and behaviors related to substance use in youth. Participation in this survey will further PACT’s efforts to prevent and reduce substance misuse in our communities. The survey takes approximately five minutes to complete.

To access the survey link go to:

PACT is funded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (SAMHSA-CSAP) to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance use and its related problems among youth and young adults. This initiative collaborates with state and federally funded community coalitions including Massapequa Takes Action Coalition (MTAC), Levittown Community Action Coalition (LCAC), and Hispanic Alliance for Prevention (HAP). Working together, we seek to understand patterns of substance misuse to better address this challenge through targeted prevention, education and outreach.

Your input and feedback are critical to our youth’s health and community’s future.

For more information about PACT or this survey, contact Rachael Neglia, Program Coordinator of PACT at YES Community Counseling Center at (516) 799-3203 x230 or email at

Parents, guardians and residents are asked to take YES Community Counseling Center’s PACT survey to provide critical input about our youth’s health and future across Nassau County.
