Patchogue | Long Island Addiction Resources

Patchogue, New York

Assessing your personal needs is one of the most important aspects of drug and alcohol rehabilitation. It is crucial to finding the best program possible to ensure a successful recovery. If you need help in this process, feel free to call us at our toll-free hotline.

During this process of finding the treatment program that will address your personal needs, it is important to look at what is required of your treatment center before admittance. Most rehabilitation centers will work with your private insurance provider. If you’re not sure if your insurance will cover treatment, contact your insurance provider directly or call us to set up an anonymous benefits check.

The United States is currently going through a heroin epidemic, with Long Island and suburban areas like Patchogue as the center point. Heroin use increased by 63 percent from 2002 to 2013, with over 8,200 people dying from heroin overdoses in 2013 alone. In 2015, there were 103 fatal overdoses and 1,898 heroin arrests in Suffolk County. Local authorities in Suffolk County started distributing the anti-opiate drug Narcan to law enforcement in order to decrease the number of fatal overdoses. While Narcan has proven effective under these circumstances, it has not affected the number of non-fatal overdoses and the high rate of heroin and opioid abuse.

The increase in heroin abuse is also directly linked to abuse of prescription opioid painkillers. The CDC reported that 45% of people who used heroin were also addicted to prescription painkillers, and the National Survey on Drug Use and health reported that heroin use is 40 times more likely in people who abuse or are dependent on prescription opioid painkillers. In order to decrease the rates of abuse, rehabilitation centers are making treatment plans for both heroin and painkiller addiction readily available.

Although many addicts choose to seek help for addiction, but some do not and see their lives spiral out of control as a result. The story of Thomas Herman is a chilling example of what happens when a person chooses not to seek help. In 2013, Thomas Herman, a Patchogue resident, was driving over 90 miles per hour on Montauk Highway while high on oxycodone, PCP, and Xanax. While driving through Sayville, Herman struck five vehicles before crashing simultaneously into two different cars, resulting in the death of 86-year-old Sam Longo and the injury of several others. Herman was arrested and indicted on charges of second-degree murder by depraved indifference, vehicular homicide, and various other crimes. He also had three other DWIs before the incident and faced up to 25 years in state prison. He eventually took a plea deal which dropped the charges down to first-degree manslaughter, which carried a lighter punishment of only 16 more years in jail. Then in 2015, after two years in jail and only a few months awaiting sentencing, Thomas Herman died of a heroin overdose in his cell at only 48 years of age.

Stories like these are now a part of everyday life with heroin and opioid addiction taking a hold of our communities. Addicts not only affect themselves but the people around them. That is why it is important for those struggling with addiction to seek treatment before more innocent people are lost as a result. If you, a loved one, or anyone you may know is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, know that recovery is possible. Sobriety is possible, and there are more treatment options available than ever before. Please do not hesitate to call us at our toll-free hotline so we can find you the treatment you and your loved ones deserve.
