A light has been cast on the growing problem of opiate addiction across Suffolk County. During an investigation, over 2,000 bags of heroin were confiscated, as was thousands of dollars in cash. A much more potent brand of heroin known as “Hollywood” was first noticed when overdoses occurred in 2011. This is not a new problem; however, the low cost of heroin is cited as having an impact on the increase of abuse. There has also been an increase in the abuse of narcotic painkillers that can be legally prescribed by a doctor that share similar qualities to drugs like, heroin, an opiate derivative.

Just a few years ago a pharmacy robbery left four dead. The man responsible admitted he was searching for painkillers for himself and his wife when he gunned down two store employees and two customers at the pharmacy. He was sentenced to life in prison. Opiate abusers and addicts have been at a steady climb. Suffolk County has seen an overall vicious cycle of expensive opioid analgesic pills and the cheaper heroin. When prescription opiates become more expensive and difficult to obtain, those who are addicted can look for the less expensive street heroin for their fix.

Everyone, not just the “poor minority communities”, is susceptible to becoming addicted to drugs like heroin ranging from teenagers to those leading seemingly successful adult lives. The court system sees people ranging in ages from 18 to 58. A former football player, now 22 years old, was arrested and charged with two felonies and seven misdemeanors, including criminal possession of heroin, criminal possession of cocaine with intent to sell, criminal possession of drug paraphernalia, reckless driving, fleeing a police officer and resisting arrest, among other charges. A weapon was also found and the young man was charged with criminal possession of a weapon. With no prior convictions he wanted to stay out of trouble and planned on going back to community college to work towards transferring back to the university where he had played football for the past three years.

A person doesn’t have to be the stereotypical homeless drug addict exhibiting the signs and systems of drug and alcohol abuse to get help. Addiction has many symptoms and it is a treatable disease. Drug and alcohol abuse begins to deteriorate a person’s moral and spiritual values and belief systems. Cravings hijack the mind and render a person unable to make conscious decisions based on moral standards anymore. This disease can turn a good person into someone who ends up in grave and desperate situations due to criminal behaviors.

People can change through honest recognition of the problem. The problem cascades outward and has an impact that directly affects people’s families, friend and peers, school, community/neighborhood, county, state, and world. The bottom line is it starts with one decision. One commitment to get help and get in to treatment and recovery makes the biggest difference.

People are not their disease. Recognizing that you are not alone is paramount on the road to getting better and living a healthier lifestyle. Recovery is possible and a successful sober life is within reach. You don’t have to go it alone. There are several treatment options that are available and can effectively help you meet your recovery goals. Call for a free benefits check. Choosing to live sober matters and makes all the difference for a better future.
