Stories of Addiction
Mark shares the story of his struggle with finding a suitable rehab facility for his daughter, Shanna, who was addicted to heroin. After several unsuccessful experiences with crowded facilities or facilities that did not accept patients long-term, Shanna found refuge in Daytop, a center that specializes in individualized treatment plans. Now the mother of a newborn, Shanna is on the road to permanent recovery. If you need help, please contact the Long Island Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependence (LICADD) at 1-516-747-2606.
