Welcome to the Substance Abuse & Prevention Resource Center

  • Welcome to the Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District Substance Abuse and Prevention Resource Center.


     The counselor’s goal is to enhance awareness about the dangers of substance use through prevention and support programs. The substance abuse counselor works collaboratively with parents, students, teachers, administrators and community agencies to provide educational opportunities that emphasize healthy decision making, effective communication, problem solving, resiliency and many other life skills.


     The purpose of this website is to provide comprehensive resources for students, parents and community members in order to foster healthy life choices and build resiliency, while working to prevent and/or reduce risk factors.  In our ever-changing society, it is more critical than ever to be well informed of the latest in substance use news, trends, and terminology, as well as opportunities and resources for all our families.


     Please take the time to review the information provided on this site routinely, as content will continue to be updated.  As the Substance Abuse Counselor for the district, I am available to all parents and happy to answer questions, and to offer support and guidance to navigate this process.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or inquiries.
