The 9th leading cause of early death in the United States is from complications due to drug and alcohol abuse. In 2014 Heroin, and other prescription drugs, were responsible for over 25,000 accidental fatal overdoses in the United States. 190, being directly linked to Nassau County. Freeport is just one of the cities in Nassau County that is experiencing this crisis. In Nassau county, Executive Edward P. Mangano launched a free public Narcan training program in September of 2012. The goal of the program is to teach citizens the signs of opioid overdose, and to help reverse the effects. While this preventive measure is a step in the right direction, it does not treat the disease of addiction as a whole. Many who work in the field of addiction believe this is only the first step of many that has to be taken towards removing the criminal stigma that surround’s addiction and teaching society that addiction ultimately is a health issue. Addiction can only be overcome by, total abstinence however that’s where it gets difficult, because many feel that addiction is more powerful than any one individual. Abstinence from all mood or mind altering substances is incredibly difficult achieve without outside professional help and support.

Heroin abuse normally doesn’t result in violent behavior, but the overwhelming need for the addict to their support opiate habit drives user into theft, burglaries, and prostitution. Addicts often steal from their family members to obtain the funds necessary to purchase heroin. Heroin dealers are often responsible for committing violent crimes such as assault’s, homicides, and drive-by shootings. 15 suspected gang members were arrested in Freeport for narcotics trafficking, and dog fighting. They were selling heroin laced with fentanyl, which has been a main contributor to accidental fatal overdoses.

Melanie lost her daughter to a heroin overdose when her daughter was only 17. She was awakened at 2:28 in the morning, and told her daughter was on her way to the hospital and it did not look good. She was in a fog for a few hours, until she was allowed to see her daughter. Surprisingly her daughter did not look bad, and was not injured in any way. To Melanie, she looked peaceful. Melanie didn’t realize at the time that she would not ever be able to look into her eyes again.
Melanie’s daughter was then transfer to the children’s hospital. Over the next few days, time seemed to stop for her. She for begged God to take her, and spare her daughter. Different test was performed on Melanie’s daughter, and they all came back with the same results, she was brain-dead. She pleaded with her daughter to wake up, before the organ donation team arrived. Melanie hugged her daughter one last time, and said her goodbyes. The following day was spent making funeral arrangements. She works with other families who have suffered with similar tragedies. Melanie lost a part or her that day but she continues to advocate for better understanding of addiction in her community.
