Purpose

Senator Phil Boyle is partnering with the Suffolk County Sheriff's Alcohol and Substance Abuse Task Force and the Youth Enrichment Services program for an important community meeting to help increase awareness about the dangers associated with drug abuse and the growing heroin epidemic facing Long Island teens.

Some of the topics that will be addressed at the meeting include:

  • Signs of drug use;
  • Current trends in street drugs, prescription drug abuse and heroin; and
  • How to find help for a family member or friend using illegal drugs.

At the conclusion of the presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to meet with local groups that can offer more detailed information, advice and treatment.  For interested attendees, free take-home drug testing kits will be available.
