Addition has become a national epidemic. The problem is only getting worse. Alcohol, heroin, cocaine, prescriptions drugs, and other substances are taking the lives of individuals who suffer from the disease of addiction. Chemical dependency is becoming one of the most dominant public health crises in the Unites States. Overdose is the leading cause of accidental death. It is of the upmost importance to notice the signs of addiction early on and begin facing the problem right away before the point of no return, loss of life. Every year the disease of addiction causes fatalities ranging from alcohol-related car crashes to violence and overdose.

Fortunately there is support when facing addiction and help is out there that can guide you along the path of recovery. You are never alone. From support groups and networks to medical processes, therapy, and education there are solutions to the problems one faces when getting out of the cycle of chemical dependence and on a better path. Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) offer a fellowship of hope and freedom from active addiction through support networks. Drug and alcohol detox is a medical process that eases the pain of withdrawal for people looking to begin their recovery journey. Drug and alcohol treatment is a starting point in many people’s recovery. Oftentimes treatment includes therapy and addiction education.

The actions of someone addiction to drugs and/or alcohol can put innocent lives and loved ones at risk and in danger or harm’s way. A Wyandanch father was accused of having drugs in the same car as his young children, one and 3 years old. Police say the man had crack cocaine and more that $1,300 cash on him. He was allegedly found rolling a marijuana cigarette in a parking lot with his two young children in the backseat of the car. He is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of marijuana and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

A 25-year-old male was found by his parents following a heroin overdose in a “wealthier” pocket of town. He was curled in a fetal position, a needle lying next to his arm. It was said that there had been multiple calls to the house in the past. Rich or poor doesn’t make a difference. Everyone is susceptible to addiction. There is an inexpensive and easily obtainable and dangerous type of heroin going around with which emergency medical squad members are all too familiar with.

Getting drugs off the streets is a primary focus for law enforcement and is one of the first steps in combatting drug abuse, however where there is demand there is supply, therefore it is paramount that individuals choose a healthy, clean, and sober lifestyle for themselves regardless of the availability of the drug or substance of choice. This is where treatment and the recovery process come in. Getting educated and informed about the signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol abuse and getting help is paramount in recovery. A support network makes all the difference in the world and in the lives of those suffering from addiction. The drug and alcohol epidemic cannot be reined in by law enforcement alone.

The harmful effects of heroin, cocaine, opioids, and alcohol can be seen in lives of individuals, families, and neighborhoods. There were two major seizures of heroin worth more than $12 million. Distributing that much heroin into the population would cause many detrimental affects to the community, as many crimes are committed under the influence in order to secure money for more drugs. Wyandanch has seen a rise in crime with the rise in population. Each individual making the choice to recover from addiction makes a difference not only in their lives, but the lives of those in the family, neighborhood, and community.

If you or a loved one are struggling with addiction help is just a phone call away. There are many roads to recovery and options for treatment. Choosing a treatment plan that best suits the individual’s needs is important. Get help while there is still time to write a new story. Pick up the phone and break the cycle. Call today.
