Every year thousands of addicts die as a result of this tragic disease. Some if not all of these deaths could have been avoided had these suffering addicts found the help they so desperately needed. In 2014, Nassau County reported that over 190 people died from a heroin or a prescription drug related overdose. These are the victims of the tragic epidemic and their families and friends are left behind to pick up the pieces. Many addicts do recover. However, there is no cure, only a daily reprieve. Recovering addicts and alcoholics are always susceptible to relapse. In an effort to cut back on the number of accidental fatal overdoses in Nassau county. Edward P. Mangano launched a free Narcan training program to the county’s citizens. While this has added a great benefit to the counties resources it has not even begun to touch the surface of this epidemic. Young people in Roslyn and the rest of Nassau County are still turning to these dangerous drugs as a solution to a much bigger problem.

The process of recovery is a little different for everyone, and every addicts story is a unique. An anonymous addict finished her commitment in a residential treatment program, and was waiting in the lobby for her husband and young son to arrive. She was expecting them to be excited to see her and praise her for getting clean, however that’s not how it happened. They showed up and looked distressed and tired and not too happy to be taking her home. Her son who was 7 at the time did not want to look her in the eyes. In that moment it was very clear what the family had a long trial ahead of them in order to rebuild what they once had.

Addiction destroys families. Those watching their loved ones struggle with the disease of addiction will feel the effects of the disease long after the addict gets clean. Their concern for the addict often turns into resentment and anger. It is often not discussed but you can often see it in the expression on their faces. The addict, as well as the addict’s family suffer, but they play different roles in the disease of addiction. She gathered up her things and signed out of the facility and went home.

She found compassion and understanding in treatment, from others who understood the distorted feelings and thinking the accompanies the disease of addiction. There is a human connection on a deep level when addicts communicate and help each other stay clean. Treatment was only temporary, yet she managed to make lifelong friends. She now has the tools necessary to nurture those friendships. Slowly but surely her family is starting to come around.
