When one becomes addicted to drugs, the desire or need to do more drugs increases. The addict becomes desperate to continue his or her using and this is the cause for the majority of robberies and auto thefts in Glen Cove. With it’s population of 27,000 and growing, the sharp rise in drug related crime is a terrifying reality that simply can not be ignored. The county has recently begun to release and hold training seminars for Narcan. Narcan is the tradename for the drug Naloxone, an “anti-opiate” drug that reverses the effect of drug like heroin, and therefor is able to potentially save somebody in the process of overdosing. A number of lives have now been saved, but Naloxone does not cure addiction, and does not prevent relapse.
As of last year, 80% of all overdoses in Glen Cove were attributed to opioids such as heroin or prescription pain management medication. Teenagers are now experiencing with dangerous street drugs at younger and younger ages, often getting hooked on pain pills such as Oxycotin or Percocet before graduating to heroin. On Halloween of last year, a Glen Cove man was found overdosed on heroin. The subsequent investigation led to the arrest of 26-year-old Brandon Jones on manslaughter charges. Every day there are more cases of drug overdoses popping up like this in the once peaceful city of Glen Cove and the number does not seem to be going down.
