Freeport Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
The number of deaths caused by heroin and prescription opioids combined has been steadily increasing in recent years across Long Island. Last year in the area around Freeport, NY, heroin killed 110 people – 15 more than the number killed by heroin the previous year. The increase of heroin overdoses and deaths seems to be directly proportional to the slight decrease in deaths from prescription painkillers. This may be partially due to the fact that heroin is often cheaper and more easily obtained than prescription drugs.
Symptoms of Opiate Abuse
The signs that someone is habitually using heroin or prescription opioid painkillers may not always be easily observed. Those who are abusing these drugs may seem to be more tired than usual and may be observed nodding off or falling asleep. These periods of fatigue may be followed by episodes of high energy. Some of the other common symptoms of opiate abuse are listed below:
- Difficulty remaining seated or remaining standing
