Heroin is a highly addictive drug that is affecting the lives of many young adults all over Long Island. Teens who become addicted to heroin often start by using what they see as less dangerous drugs, including prescription drugs often found in their parents' medicine cabinets. Heroin doesn't cost a lot, it's deadly, and is a major concern for community members, treatment providers, families, the Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) and other Nassau County officials.
