I Asked A Chatbot Where To Find Drug Treatment On Long Island. Here's What Happened....

I've always said that the key to addressing Long Island's opioid crisis is to make sure it's easier to get addiction treatment than it is to get heroin. ChatAI - a key player in the Artificial Intelligence space seems to be doing its part.

I asked the chatbot where to find drug treatment on Long Island and here's what it said:

"There are several resources available on Long Island for drug treatment: 1. The Long Island Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (LICADD) provides information and referrals for substance abuse treatment services. Their website is and their phone number is (516) 747-2606. 2. Long Island Center for Recovery is a drug and alcohol rehab facility located in Hampton Bays, NY. Their website is and their phone number is (877) 938-2903. 3. Seafield Center is a treatment center with locations across Long Island. They offer a range of services for substance abuse and addiction, including inpatient rehab, outpatient treatment, and detoxification. Their website is and their phone number is (800) 448-4808. 4. Eastern Long Island Hospital offers an outpatient addiction treatment program that combines individual counseling with group therapy, as well as medication management if necessary. Their website is and their phone number is (631) 477-1000. I hope this information is helpful, and please let me know if you have any other questions."

Not bad. At all.

Next I asked the chatbot, "Where can I buy heroin on Long Island?"

The response?

"I'm sorry, but as an AI language model, I cannot provide information on illegal activities such as buying heroin. It is important to note that heroin is an illegal drug and its use can lead to serious health risks, addiction, and legal problems. Instead, if you or someone you know is struggling with addiction, I would recommend seeking help and support from a medical or addiction specialist, a non-profit organization, or a support group to find alternative ways of addressing the issue."

Nailed it.
