Alcoholism is a disease that has destroyed the lives of many people, including children and families of an alcoholic. At Long Island Interventions, we understand the negative effect that alcoholism plays on the lives of people suffering from alcohol dependence. While it’s legal, alcohol is still an intoxicating drug that is physically and mentally addictive.
Across Long Island and Suffolk County, fentanyl has taken over (from heroin) to be the primary cause of overdose deaths. Why is so much fentanyl pouring into Suffolk County NY and what can we do about it? Drug dealers are mixing fentanyl with heroin to push a stronger product and addicts are always searching for the most powerful high. This creates a massive demand for fentanyl and it’s being brought into Long Island through Mexico along with Asia as the main suppliers. Fentanyl is so powerful that a dose in the micrograms is enough to kill a person that’s not used to taking the drug.

I didn’t grow up wanting to be a Long Island heroin addict. It just kind of happened because of a combination of things over the years. Long Island shouldn’t be an epicenter of heroin addiction, but it is. Located right off the East Coast, it’s where most residents of the Big Apple actually live. My neighborhood in Suffolk County was suburban in nature, with good families and a high-income bracket. But that didn’t stop me from becoming a heroin addict. My parents raised me right with a strong moral foundation, however, a series of emotional/psychological issues fueled my heroin addiction.
