Phoenix House Offers Hope for Addicts in Hamptons Community
Date:6/16/2009

Phoenix House Benefit Honoring Haley and Jason Binn

East Hampton, Saturday, June 27, 2009, 6-8 PM

NEW YORK, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- "Addiction runs its devastating course through every community - including the Hamptons," says Howard Meitiner, President and CEO of Phoenix House, one of the nation's largest non-profit alcohol and drug abuse treatment and prevention programs. "But in all the discussion of East Hampton and its environs, people rarely see the other side of the story."

"Ninety percent of the people we treat out here are the working poor - those who cannot afford to pay for long-term treatment but who earn just too much to qualify for Medicaid. It is these individuals and families who are stuck in the middle, and who desperately need our programs. So it is critical that we reach out to local philanthropists and members of the community who can help fund these programs, especially given the stark reality of this economic downturn."

As a key part of this outreach, on June 27th Phoenix House will host a benefit in East Hampton, a community with surprisingly high statistics of alcohol and drug abuse, especially among young people. In Suffolk County, nearly 12% of the population that is 12 years old and older is chemically dependent, and the addiction rate for adolescents 12-17 is very close to that of adults (10% for teens vs. 12% for adults). Only 25% of addicted teens in the community are receiving treatment.

The Phoenix House event will honor Haley and Jason Binn, leaders in public service and philanthropy in New York City and the Hamptons. Mr. Binn is the Founder and CEO of Niche Media, publisher of such titles as Gotham, Hamptons, Los Angeles Confidential, and Ocean Drive.

The benefit will raise money for two key Phoenix House programs serving the Hamptons commu
