Bellport | Long Island Addiction Resources

Bellport, New York

When we or loved ones are struggling with addiction it will always be a trying time. The disease of addiction is a very powerful and overwhelming problem effecting ourselves and anyone around us. When addicts are ready to undertake treatment it is a critical time in their recovery. The first days of recovery usually take place in a treatment center, where they can receive the proper level of care when detoxing off whatever drugs they are abusing. There are thousands of treatment centers that are able to help during this transition period, however with so many options available it can be confusing for addicts and their families to locate the proper facility.
By calling our hotline we can help you sort through this confusion. We will perform a pre-assessment to acknowledge the personal barriers you have to recovery as everyone is different. In doing so we can help find you a program that will best suite your needs as an individual. Most treatment centers will work with major insurance companies in terms of covering the cost of treatment. We can also perform a benefits check for you, that way we know exactly what types of services will be covered and the level of care that you are eligible to receive. With all of this identified we will be able to match you with a treatment center that will best suite your needs.

Long Island as a whole has been ravaged by drugs and the drug trade. Bellport specifically has seen a steady increase in not only drug abuse but drug related crime. With New York City as a neighbor there has always been an influx of drugs being peddled by local drug dealers to addicts that live in the area. With so many avenues for drugs to enter into the market in New York, the communities in close proximity unfortunately feel the brunt of the fallout created.

Drug addiction and the sale of drugs has been a problem in Bellport for years. Suffolk County Medical examiner’s point to a 300% increase in overdose due to opiate use and the problem is only getting worse. 25,000 deaths are attributed to opiate overdose nationally, again displaying a major increase not only on local level but across the country as well. In Suffolk County “The Opiate Overdose Prevention Program” has been established to arm families with a drug called Narcan. This drug is an anti-opiate medication that can save the life of an addict experiencing an overdose, the program also seeks to inform families and addicts how to properly use this drug. While this program is saving countless lives, it is not eliminating the problem all together, drugs will constantly flood the streets making it all too easy for drug addicts to get their hands on whatever it is that they are looking for.
Recently a home in Bellport was condemned after a search warrant was executed on the property. What investigators uncovered was truly shocking. Six people, four adults and two teenagers were placed under arrest after they discovered drugs, guns, and ammunition alongside three small children. Officials stated that the home inside and out was covered in filth and that the children were forced to rely on kerosene fueled heaters for warmth. The residents were arrested for possession of controlled substances, fourth-degree criminal possession of a narcotic drug, and acting in a manor to injure a child. The police first started investigating the home when local residents came forth with suspicions on the home being used for drug use. The alleged drug house was confirmed and has now been officially condemned.
Brian Poole, 27, of Bellport was arrested as being the ringleader of an operation that imported high grade marijuana into Suffolk County from California. It’s alleged that Poole would profit anywhere from $55 to $800 per pound that was moved into the County. Poole is being held in County jail with a $1,000,000 cash bail and a parole hold. Authorities seized upon a search warrant many various forms of high grade marijuana, a handgun, stun gun, and over $200,000 in cash generated from the sale of drugs.
One look into the police blotter shows how big of a problem the effects of drugs are having on Bellport and Suffolk County as a whole. There are more drugs available to more drugs addicts than ever before. While authorities do what they can to quell the problem, there will always be a new drug dealer or drug addict to fuel the never ending struggle against drug abuse.
