Drug addiction and alcoholism has been affecting the community of Long Island for years. Some Elmont residents are turning to drugs and alcohol at a young age as a means to cope with the pressure of their lives. Most people initially start using to have a good time, to fit in amongst their peers, party with their friends because it feels good, or just to escape from reality for a little while. However, most people grow out of this phase and move on with life. They continue on with their education and start good careers and families, and often realize that their partying was getting in the way of their future and is a danger to what they hold near and dear.

Addicts take a totally different approach to the important role that alcohol and drugs play in their lives. Although most addicts start out using innocently enough, addicts find using drugs and alcohol as the perfect solution to problems, feelings, and emotions. Not using drugs becomes their liability. There are varying stages of addiction, but addiction always becomes progressively worse. Some addicts do very well for themselves. They build successful careers, start families, and sometimes gain fortune and fame. However, since the disease of addiction is progressive, their using eventually blots out everything else and drugs and alcohol become the most important thing in their lives. They acquire sometimes weird and anti-social behaviors and the world starts to become hostile and frightening.

“People do recover from addiction,” an anonymous addict told us in her story. She grew up with religion in her house, going to church every Sunday, even playing sports in school with her friends. After being molested by a family member she started drinking. She was 13 years old. The progression of the disease brought her to smoking crack and shooting heroin by the age of 19. She still managed to graduate high school with honors and started collage. Shortly after graduating she gave birth to her son. Even though she had every reason to stay clean, she found that she couldn’t stop, and it all came to an end very quickly. She was arrested several times, and it got to the point that her family did not want to be around her.

In desperation she started stripping, which in turn lead to prostituting as a means to pay for her habit. Ending up homeless and sleeping in the woods for three years she had gotten to a point that she would do anything just to get one more.

When she finally got decided to get clean she decided to put herself away for a little while. In the treatment center, she went to 12 step meetings and she took every suggestion given to her by the clinical staff. The most important suggestion of all was not using no matter what. Since then she has built her life back to somewhat normal. She recently got married and had a second child, and has built a wonderful relationship with her first son. She told us, “I do dwell on my past and I am totally okay with everything that has happened to me in my life as it has made me who I am today.” What’s most rewarding to her is that she is able to help other young women who have done the same things she’s done and show them how to get to the other side.

If you can relate to her story and can’t stop using drugs and alcohol, call us on our toll-free hot line for a confidential benefits check and a clinical assessment. You journey to freedom can start today.
