Roosevelt | Long Island Addiction Resources

Roosevelt, New York

Seeking the help that you need for your drug and alcohol problem in Roosevelt is an important and life changing decision. Addiction is a disease. A good majority of addicts never seek treatment for a number of different reasons, often because they are unaware that there is even help available. They don’t want to appear weak or think that it’s too late to even try. Addiction often results in early death or incarceration. If you have found this page and would like to stop living in the grips of active addiction, there is help for you. The old saying once an addict, always an addict, is being redefined.

Treatment centers offer a wide spectrum of care. Not all treatment centers are the same. Some examples of different types of treatment include detox, residential treatment, and even various levels of outpatient programs. The goal of a detox, is to safely ween you off the substance and get you prepared for the next phase of your treatment. Inpatient treatment can last anywhere from 1to 18 months, depending on the drugs being abused and the severity of your addiction. Inpatient treatment is usually followed by Intensive outpatient treatment which offers less intense therapy while also living independently. Once you have determined what your needs for treatment are, you will want to find a facility that will help meet those needs. Most recovery centers work with private health insurance providers. If you are not certain if your health insurance provider will cover alcohol and drug treatment, contact us on our toll-free hotline for a free confidential benefits check. You can also contact your health insurance provider to see if you have addiction coverage directly, but they will not be able to place you in a center.

In 1970, while Kevin was in junior high, his friend came up to him with a little baggy full of a white powder and gave him some to sniff. He was hooked right then. He knew he shouldn’t do it, but he wanted to fit in among his peers, and this was his answer. At first it was heroin, and then came cocaine with the disco era.

His mother was an educator and was involved with the church. His father was in the National Guard. He had a good family. Drug use was the furthest thing from his parent’s mind. He would come home at night after using, and his mother would ask him what was wrong with him. He wanted to stop using, but he didn’t know how. Getting treatment in the 70s was not the norm. If you were an addict, it was kept quiet. For example, his father drank, but never kept alcohol in the house. It was all kept a secret.

In his mid-teens, was arrested for possession of heroin and went to juvenile detention for ten days. He was court ordered to go to treatment, he stayed in treatment for three years. He learned how to be an adult in treatment, how to get gut level honest with others. The friends he made in treatment are still near and dear to his heart. And although treatment has changed a lot over the years, the sense of community and support will always be there. He learned how to love himself and others. He’s not as self-centered anymore and has devoted his life to helping other young men, find the recovery they so desperately need. He has taken up interest in running. He’s run 13 marathons and is preparing for number 14. Living life on life’s terms is what he is most proud of.

Roosevelt is just one of the many areas throughout the country that has experienced the dark side of addiction, with fatal overdoses and drug related crimes. Families are left up in arms and heartbroken. Our young people are turning to harder drugs at a faster rate now, than in any other time in history. The other side (lighter side) of addiction, is that addicts and their families are finding the help that they need and becoming a valuable asset in fighting this seemingly hopeless uphill battle.
