“WHY JOIN THE TOWN OF BABYLON CARES?”
Youth led and adult guided, the Lindenhurst Community Cares Coalition, also known as Lindy Cares, has actively worked in the Lindenhurst Community since 2013. Lindy Cares is committed to reducing underage drinking and substance abuse within Lindenhurst and is now joining forces with Copiague, Deer Park and Wyandanch coalitions along with all the communities in the Town of Babylon.
Town of Babylon Cares is our community, you can join in any one of our campaigns and events designed to create positive community change. Together, we are working to develop and implement strategies to reduce access to substances, while empowering our youth members to create a safe community that supports their goals to reach their highest potential.

Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is an evidence-based approach to identifying patients who use alcohol and other drugs at risky levels. The goal of SBIRT is to reduce and prevent related health consequences, disease, accidents and injuries. Stigma keeps many people from seeking services they want or need for mental health and addiction. Let’s change the conversations and make screenings a routine preventive service in healthcare for all. Contact us for more information or apply to become a volunteer.
