Millbrook Rotary hosted a broadcast of RadioRotary with guests Steve Pressman, Executive Director of the Mid-Hudson Addiction Recovery Centers, Inc. (MARC) and Laurie Quinn (Philmont Rotary Club), a director of the MARC Foundation. A main problem facing MARC and the entire nation is the heroin and opiate epidemic. Currently in the United States 129 persons each day die from a heroin or opiate overdose. MARC is a residential program that both sends persons with addiction to other appropriate facilities as needed and houses and treats the addicted in several ways—A Crisis Center, three residential treatment centers, and nearly 30 sober housing apartments. Ms. Quinn is trying to help erase the stigma of drug addiction by shining a light on the problem. She tells the story of her son Eric: About a year ago he showed his mother needle tracks on his arms and said he needed help. At that point, despite holding down two jobs, he was using ten bags of heroin daily.
