Newsday recently highlighted the growing Heroin problem in our area. Are we alone in the growing issue and what programs are there that can help a recovering addict.

The story begins

"Heroin's toll on Long Island is climbing, with hundreds of deaths over two years, an increase in nonfatal overdoses and evidence of a younger clientele, according to public officials, experts and preliminary statistics.

The drug killed a record 121 people in Nassau and Suffolk in 2012 and at least 120 last year -- the two highest totals ever recorded, data show.

The recent rise in heroin deaths comes even as use of the lifesaving intranasal overdose antidote Narcan grows. Hundreds of overdosing patients -- including 563 people in Suffolk County alone -- successfully received the treatment from police and paramedics last year, county officials said."

Our contribution of knowledge and experience can  be heard on this and many of the programs that we do.
