“Addiction can happen to anyone, any family, at any time”
Under historic legislation signed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, the Combat Heroin website was developed to fight the growing heroin and prescription opioid epidemic in New York State.
Recognizing that addiction can happen to anyone, to any family, at anytime, this website will assist people seeking information about heroin and prescription opioid addiction. This website includes: 1) the warning signs of addiction; 2) helpful hints for having conversations with young people; 3) information on accessing treatment; and 4) guidance on getting involved in your community. Video clips will be included with real New Yorkers sharing their experiences with this chronic disease. You will meet family members and friends who have lost loved ones due to an overdose as well as young people living in recovery. Additionally, the website includes links to flyers and resources for download.

I Am Not Anonymous
A photo essay of people in recovery who courageously come forward to change the stigma of addiction by breaking their silence.
For years, those suffering from addiction have done so in silence as a result of the negative stigma surrounding it. The truth is, people DO recover. Our mission is to bring the SOLUTION into the conversation in hopes of helping the millions of people who remain untreated and help the world understand that addiction is not amoral failing. It is a powerful disease and the stigma associated with it is just as deadly as the disease itself. Started by Tom Goris (recovering heroin addict) & Kate (Tom’s girlfriend & professional photographer) both from LI.
