Heroin Drug and Alcohol Addiction Rehab in Long Beach NY

Long Beach, New York

Drugs are coming directly into the harbors of New York City from South America and then being dispersed to the surrounding areas. This makes drugs readily accessible to nearly anybody looking for them, in particular the addicts living in the surrounding suburbs like Long Beach.

Heroin and other opioids are the leading cause of fatal overdoses in the United States with over 25,000 deaths from prescription drugs alone in 2014, with 190 of them being in Nassau County alone. Long Beach has long been suffering from the drug epidemic that has been taking the country by storm. The city of 34,000 people has seen some of the largest increases of drug overdoses. Over the last 15 years there has been a steady increase in the total number of overdoses with 2015 have double the total number of cases from the year prior. The situation is becoming so dire that the county has begun to supply local residents with the anti-opiate drug Narcan to help reduce the total number of fatal overdoses. While this has been proving to be an effective counter measure against fatal overdoses, it has not stopped the drug trafficking or the number of non-fatal overdoses.

In June of last year, a drug raid on the house of a suspected drug dealer turned up over 120 pounds of pure cocaine, several pounds of methamphetamine, and over $20,000 in cash used to fund criminal activities in the small community. These sort of crackdowns are becoming commonplace and a strong indication of the current state of the city of Long Beach.

The need for desperate drug addicts to get their fix is resulting in a rise in violent crimes in the area. A police officer was assaulted during a routine traffic stop last December after the officer discovered a bag containing marijuana. The suspect proceeded to exit the vehicle and attempt to remove the officer’s gun out of his holster. After being subdued an additional three bags of heroin, cocaine, the hallucinogen nicknamed “Molly”, and hypodermic needles were found inside of the car. The 33-year old suspect also had a knife in his front pocket.

The families of drug addicts and alcoholics may be the ones suffering the most. The parents of Holly Prussman, who died of a heroin overdose in 2010, talk of how they could not see the signs until it was too late. An honors student, Holly was an exceptional student, having a average grade of 98. a until meeting her boyfriend who would introduce her to heroin. In a few short years Holly would transform from a model student into a heroin addict. She is a constant reminder that anyone can succumb to the horrors of addiction and that we need to help drug addicts get all of the help then can get.

Long Beach is becoming an example of exactly what happens when drugs begin to flood into small town America. It is important that resources for drug and alcohol treatment are as available as possible. These numbers and stories are startling, but addiction does not have keep taking the lives of the ones we love.
