Heroin and opioids are the leading cause of fatal overdoses in the United States. With over 25,000 reported overdoses in 2014 alone, 190 being directly linked to Nassau County. Stewart Manor is just one of the cities in Nassau County that has been plagued by this epidemic. The epidemic has lead to Nassau county Executive Edward P. Mangano’s launching of a free public Narcan training program. The goal of the program is to teach residents the signs of opioid overdose in order to reverse the effects. While this measure is a step in the right direction it only scratches the surface of the epidemic that has plagued Stewart Manor and the rest of Nassau County. Many addictions professionals believe that the disease of addiction can only be overcome by treatment, ongoing support, and a complete change of thinking.
