About LCAC

Founded in 2015, LCAC works together with dedicated individuals and entities from the Levittown Community - including representatives from our schools, youth, law enforcement, media, hospitals, libraries, substance abuse treatment agencies, civic groups, businesses, religious organizations, state and local agencies, and other organizations involved in substance abuse prevention- to reduce substance misuse through education, awareness, and empowerment.

In 2019, 212 individuals in Nassau County died from a drug overdose and 182 of these deaths involved the use of opioids.1 In our area, prescription drugs and illicit opioids continue to be a major problem among our youth, as is alcohol abuse and underage drinking. While the statistics are numbing, there is hope. Research shows that prevention, education and early intervention strategies can reduce the impact of substance use and mental disorders in communities. That’s why LCAC is here… to help our community by providing education and promoting prevention at a young age.

Our Mission

Through the use of prevention, education, and engagement, Levittown Community Action Coalition (LCAC) aims to create a safe, healthy and secure community for children and adults where untimely deaths are reduced and fewer lives are affected by addiction.

Our Vision

Our vision is to support a community where residents feel safe, valued, connected, and empowered to respond to life’s challenges without resorting to the use and abuse of alcohol, opiates, and other drugs. In pursuit of this goal, we provide members of Levittown, Island Trees and the surrounding communities with the tools they need to open the lines of communication that are so vital to preventing alcohol and drug misuse.
