I am happy to say that one of our peer leaders in recovery was able to help a 16 year old disclose their heroin addiction of two years and their desire to stop. Because of the leaders past experience they were able to talk in a way they could hear. This allowed us to guide them and their parent to a doctor, to NA meetings,and enroll in an out patient program. It was one of the most time consuming stressful processes that I am so grateful to have witnessed and been a part of. We will continue to support them as the road to recovery is never easy.

For those who weren't aware, I wanted to let you know that there is a syringe exchange program operating in Kingston, Poughkeepsie, Newburgh, and Monticello. They provide clean syringes, injection kits, Narcan, HIV/Hepatitis testing, and information about harm reduction. While it would be ideal to have those using IV drugs enter treatment, the reality is that some aren't ready. For this population, it is imperative to reduce the spread of disease and build a relationship with professionals for when they decide that they are ready for help.

I work with someone in the New Paltz area who is certified to provide these services anywhere in town. If you know anyone in around the area who may be in need of his services, please message me.
