Williston Park | Long Island Addiction Resources

Williston Park, New York

Drug addiction and alcoholism are two of the most prevalent yet under recognized diseases taking and ruining lives in the country today. 2015 saw the highest number of incidents of fatal car crashes yet on record, with 80% of them involving an intoxicated driver. Drug and alcohol abuse in small communities like Williston Park is often ignored and not spoken off often, but drug and alcohol abuse affects everybody around us, whether we realize it or not. Call us now for a free consultation if you or someone dear to you is struggling with drug addiction and alcoholism. We will help you determine the best course of action for you and help to get you placed into a treatment center today.

There were almost 50,000 deaths from drug overdoses last year alone, 14% more than 2014, and 20% more than in 2013. The number of fatal drug overdoses has been steadily climbing over the past 20 years and does not seem to be slowing down any time soon. Williston Park is thought to be a quite and safe town, but addiction does not discriminate and exists everywhere you look.

Nassau County sits right outside of New York City on Long Island and has seen a drastic increase in the number of drug overdoses, drug arrests, DWIs, and drug related violence over the past fifteen years. There are over 1.3 million people living in Nassau county today, many of whom are seeing what the drug epidemic in this country is doing. Every year since 2010, the total number of fatal drug overdoses has climbed until it peaked in 2015. Almost all of these deaths can be attributed to the quick rise of opioids such as heroin, morphine, and prescription painkillers.

Williston Park is a small community of only a little over 7,000 residents, but that does not stop drugs from coming into the town and ruining lives. Being so close to New York City makes it very easy for anybody to get whatever there are looking for on the open drug market. The demographic with the fastest rise in the number of drug users is young people in their mid-to-late teens who live in the suburbs outside of a large urban hub. This puts Williston Park right in the crosshairs and makes it a prime target for the growing demand for drugs in the suburbs.

The effects of the disease of addiction are far reaching, often much further than can be seen at first. From the obvious health risks to the tearing apart of entire communities, addiction has crept into every facet of society. With addiction comes desperation, and that desperation leads to crime such as robbery and prostitution. It ruins the life of the user and everyone that cares about them.

There is a prevailing image of what a drug addict is. The media often portrays drug addict as being dirty, homeless, wearing nothing but rags, but drug addiction can affect anybody from any walk of life. 38-year-old Kiersten Cerveny was a dermatologist working at Prohealth Care Associates in Williston Park. She was found dead of a cocaine overdose on October 5, 2015. The mother of three’s body was found laying in a hallway after a long night of partying and hard drug use. Cerveny graduated from Duke University magna cum laude and was respected in her field by her colleagues. Addiction is not just about social class; it’s about needing help. Anybody can fall victim to addiction, anywhere.

Stories like this are tragic, but it’s important to know that recovery from drug and alcohol addiction not only exists, but it is attainable for anybody who looks for it. There are more options than ever before to get addicts the help they need. Long Island Addiction Resources was created so that addicts looking for help can be directed to the help they need. You can be placed into a treatment center today and being the process of recovery and start to rebuild your life. Call us today.
