Welcome to the Queens Consortium on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (QCASA) website!  The Consortium services the people of Queens County by targeting issues of chemical abuse, promoting healthy behaviors, and networking professionals and consumers with the common goal of addressing issues that impact those who have been affected by substance abuse.

The Queens Consortium on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (QCASA) is an alliance of substance abuse treatment providers and consumers within Queens County.

Through a collaboration with NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS), our goal is to promote awareness, unity and social change within Queens County.

The Queens Consortium is part of the NYC Federation of Mental Health, Mental Retardation, and Alcoholism Services.

Our Misson

Connect with Providers

QCASA meetings are a great opportunity for providers to network and attend valuable presentations on topics such as cutting edge treatment approaches, changes to billing and insurance regulations, and what services are available from fellow providers. Get support and get involved!

Connect with Consumers

Membership in QCASA gives current and former consumers and clients information about how treatment services are provided and how local and statewide policies are developed. Attending these monthly meetings is a way of doing service within the treatment community and can be a valuable part of your recovery. Let your voice be heard!

Connect with Young People

Our youngest members of QCASA have started their own subcommittee,Youth Empowerment Speaks (YES) showing that young people can stay away from alcohol and drug use and still have a good time. Young people in recovery are also welcome to attend YES meetings and share your experiences with the group.
