The longer you or your loved one wait to get help, the stronger your heroin addiction will grow. Call Long Island Addiction Resources now to begin breaking the cycle.
The Long Island Expressway has come to be known as the “heroin highway” among many law enforcement officials.
Long Island is home to a thriving heroin trade. More and more residents continue to die from heroin because they simply aren’t getting the help they need. Nassau County is seeing more and more overdose fatalities, while Suffolk had over 100 in 2015 for the third consecutive year. The problem has ballooned to the point at which local law enforcement formed a joint task force between the two counties to investigate each overdose and combat it. If you or a loved one has fallen into heroin addiction, quality treatment can keep you from becoming one of these tragic and unfortunate statistics.
Without prompt and immediate treatment, heroin users become more vulnerable each day to a variety of physical health issues, including:
Heroin use can also lead to serious mental health issues like depression, extreme hostility and irritability, impaired mental functioning and anxiety. If you or a loved on are starting to experience these symptoms, it’s imperative that you seek treatment right away to avoid falling further into this crippling addiction.
Some of the ways to tell if you someone you care about is abusing heroin include:
If you’re struggling with heroin abuse, or sitting by watching you care about struggle, the last thing you want to think about is how you can’t afford to pay for treatment. Heroin addiction is a legitimate medical disease and insurance companies routinely work with care providers. Your insurance carrier may cover a portion or even all of your treatment. Don’t let money stand in the way of your recovery. Long Island Addiction Resources can help you find a quality and cost-effective treatment option so you can start healing.

|“My life was a constant cycle of relapse and withdrawal. I tried to get clean so many times on my own, but I always failed. I didn’t think treatment could do anything for me. When I finally called Long Island Addiction Resources, I quickly learned the difference between getting help at an actual treatment center and trying to quit cold-turkey.”||“It’s every parent’s worst nightmare. My kid came home from college with more than just dirty laundry: he came home with a heroin addiction. It took me a month to confirm that something was wrong, but when I did, I called Long Island Addiction Resources. To this day, I credit that phone call with helping me get my son back.”||“After a year of thinking you’re completely alone, it really helps when someone listens to you, even it is a stranger on the other end of the phone. Long Island Addiction Resources gave me the information and encouragement that I needed to put down the needle and get myself into a program. I’ve been clean for a year and three days.”|
