Joseph, a recovering heroin addict from floral Park, talks about how his parents got divorced when he was 4 years old. Even though his parents got divorced he admits, he still had a pretty terrific childhood. He was likable, had lots of friends, and did well in school. He considered himself lucky, because he had very loving and supportive family. He began smoking pot at the age of 13, his older brother had introduced him to it, in turn he introduced it to his friends at school. He loved weed and that was how it all started. At the age of 14 he had his first drink. Alcohol made him feel 10 feet tall and not afraid of anything. By his freshmen year in high school he was drinking every morning before class, in and after school as well. He couldn’t wait to get home from school to go up to his room and drink, and smoke pot by himself.
He managed to graduate from high school, and went away to college up state. While there, he soon became friends with a kid who introduced him to cocaine. His family had no idea what was happening to their son. Eventually he began to lose contact with his family. He put on a facade that everything was okay. In retrospect he realizes he was not okay, he was getting wasted every night. Although he was able to keep up with his schoolwork, his life began to unravel. At 19 years old, Joseph was introduced to opiates after having two teeth pulled. His doctor prescribed him Vicodin for pain, he was hooked after the first pill. That night he went out with his friends and was talking up a storm, and he said to himself, “this is a good high”.

His addiction spiraled out of control, seeking opiates in college, and back at home. He started getting into harder opiates like OxyContin, which were easier for him to obtain in college upstate. At home he would drink, take ecstasy, and do cocaine, because opiates were too hard to find locally. By 2009, he was addicted to OxyContin. Joseph started dating a girl from Port Jefferson who introduced him to heroin, right away he started shooting it. When Joseph was 22 years old he was arrested several times, for DWI, and selling marijuana, which he did to support his drug habit. He separated himself from his loved ones, and was shooting heroin and cocaine all the time. He was given the option to go to jail or rehab he chose jail, because he didn’t want to be labeled an addict. After 5 months in jail, he promised himself he would never shot heroin again. But he ended up using again, right after he was released for jail . He started stealing, and committing crimes to pay for his habit.

His dad arranged for him to go to a treatment center in Florida, but he was not ready. Joseph, thought he could drink go to bars, and meet girls like a normal young person, He didn’t stay clean. Then came a series of rehabs and detox’s, it was a revolving door. One day he woke up after a long night of shooting cocaine and he said to himself,” this is it, I can’t do this anymore!” He got on his knees and prayed. He decided to reach out for help one last time. He called a guy who he met while in treatment, the guy took him to a meeting. He started taking suggestions, and not picking up no matter what. Though it was simple it was not easy. But with support and help, he believes can get through anything clean .
