Author to discuss the current opioid crisis


The nationwide heroin and opioid epidemic hits home right here on Long Island. An author talk that will take place at Dolphin Bookshop offers hope and healing.

Simon A. Zysman, one of the nation’s most prominent and well-known clinical psychologists in the treatment of addiction, will discuss his new book, “Successful Heroin & Opioid Addiction Treatment” on Saturday, Jan. 19 at 4 p.m.

In his book, Zysman shares his vast experience in recovery treatment, as well as a deep look into his incredibly effective treatment program that sets former addicts on a positive road to recovery and a productive future.

Opioid use runs rampant throughout the United States. Zysman’s success in treating this vicious addiction goes against the grain when it comes to the techniques utilized by many recovery specialists. His reputation is such that he was invited to address the New York State Senate Task Force on Heroin and Opiate Addiction on his groundbreaking treatment methodology. It was there that Zysman was asked to write a book about the approach.

“Successful Heroin & Opioid Addiction Treatment” is the result, which spotlights Zysman’s important work and includes contributions from other noted medical professionals.

The author event is free and open to the public.

Dolphin Bookshop is located at 299 Main St. in Port Washington.
