Drug Alcohol Addiction Treatment in Babylon NY

Babylon, New York

Town like Babylon are among some of the hardest hit when it comes to not only drug addiction but the drug trade as well. All counties that are in close proximity to New York City are feeling the effects of an increase in drug addiction and the crime that comes along with it. In such an over saturated market such as New York City, the counties closest to the epicenter are flooded with drugs and drug related crime.

Suffolk County has been engaged in a long battle against the horrors of drugs. Specifically Heroin and opiates as a whole have been a major detriment to the community. Opiate use has led to 25,000 deaths nationwide due to overdose. 15 to every 100,000 will experience an overdose on a national scale. Suffolk County has seen a 300% increase in opiate related deaths according the Counties Medical Examiner’s office. Narcan, and anti-opiate drug has begun to be dispensed via “The Opiate Overdose Prevention Program,” which not only arms residents with the drug but also informs them on what to look for in terms of symptoms but also how to properly administer the drug. The program has saved a countless amount of lives, but unfortunately will never be able to stop the problem all together as drug addicts and drug dealers are constantly seeking to distribute and consume these illicit substances.

A quick look at the Babylon police report records gives you an idea of how widespread and severe the problem has become. In the ending month of December 2015, over 30 arrests were made for those either driving under the influence of alcohol or driving while impaired by the use of drugs. Charges range from simple DUI charges, to possession of narcotics, larceny, and some that even include DUI charges with children involved which demonstrates the lack of regard these drug addicts have for those around them. The problem only seems to be getting worse as well.

Babylon’s, proximity to New York City makes it all too easy for drug dealers to not only maintain a constant supply of drugs but also ensures that they a massive client base for them to peddle their drugs to. In February, of 2015, eight people were arrested, including 4 confirmed gang members, for the sale and possession of controlled substances. Police seized $15,000 worth of drugs, loaded handguns, and drug paraphernalia. Heroin, crack cocaine, and marihuana were seized during the raids. Through further investigation, it was uncovered by authorities that ring were obtaining their drugs from Brooklyn and transporting the drugs back to Babylon, and Suffolk County as a whole. These dealers were young, ranging in age from 19-25, showing that the effects of the lucrative drug trade has no opposition to targeting the young and getting them lost in the maze of addiction and trafficking.

These examples are alarming to say the least, addiction does not discriminate and will prey on anyone that dares to get to close. It’s unfortunate that families and kids are on the front lines against this war on drugs. The average age of first use is steadily decreasing as well, with kids in highs schools across Suffolk County and Babylon stating that it is all too easy for them to obtain and use heroin and other narcotics. With low prices and long lasting high, it’s no wonder why kids are so quickly turning to heroin as a quick high and getting sucked into a vicious cycle of addiction.

The best way to inform families of those affected by addiction and the addicts themselves is through information. Understanding the different types of aid available to them is critical, for without them knowing there is recovery and a new way of life, a way out, they may never find it. It’s also important to realize that amid all of the horror stories of addiction there are those of recovery, people who stopped using, entered into a drug rehabilitation program, and moved on with their lives sober. Understanding the different forms of treatment and providing aid to get there is what we do.
