EVERYONE is capable of change

Addiction is one of the most difficult problems a person can face. It is full of pain, self loathing, and confusion. To further add to this the common conception from the outside is that it is a choice. That the addict can stop using whenever they want. That they simply do not want to stop hurting themselves and those close to them. These attitudes can make a difficult problem even worse. Understanding the disease of addiction is essential to recovery. If you or someone you know is struggling to find a way out please call our helpline today. We have the knowledge and the resources to help you and those you love.

Treatment centers range in area of expertise, location, and duration of stay. Most accept insurance, either private or government, for all or partial payment. The first course of action recommended by most treatment centers is detoxification, also known as Detox. This is a short term hospital or medically supervised inpatient stay to treat the potential physical symptoms of drug abuse and withdrawal. Rehabilitation, or Rehab, centers are more long term establishments. They can range from several weeks all the way up to a year or more. There are also “Dual Diagnosis” centers designed to treat individuals with drug problems as well as mental disorders. We can help navigate this wide array of treatment options and find the best fit for your needs.

Hampton Bays has seen the same trend as most of Long Island and Sufflok county. It is one more example in the ongoing rise of drug use, sale, and addiction hitting suburban America. Stronger chemicals once designated for inner city sales have been branching into all parts of the area. Overdoses, arrests, and deaths caused directly or indirectly by drug use have been on the rise at record pace in the last decade. The Hampton Bay beach community is a large target for drug dealers looking for a seasonal clientele. What starts as a spring break or summer weekend can all too often escalate into serious danger.

The scope of the drug business is immense, and often law enforcement is struggling to keep pace. Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota on Tuesday announced 23 arrests as part of a 16-month sting that dismantled one of Suffolk’s largest heroin rings, including an alleged Hampton Bays dealer. Ryan Walsh, 28, of Hampton Bays was among those arrested on charges of second-degree conspiracy for allegedly selling heroin to local residents as part of the drug ring, which spanned from Queens to Suffolk County. It was estimated about 15,000 bags of heroin per week were sold in Suffolk County during the investigation, marketed under name such as “Sweet Death,” “Starbucks,” and “Kneebender.”

A search warrant carried out on Rifino’s house during the investigation found 2,500 bags of heroin and $80,000 in cash stored in a shoe box.
This investigation also connects to the worst outcome of drugs such as these. In one wire tap recording members of this organization were heard talking about attending a local funeral mass. The wake was for a teenager (name and age withheld) who had overdosed on heroin. This story is far too common in our area.

Children between the ages of 12 and 17 who have reported illicit drug use have increase since 2010 by nearly 300%. 20 to 29 has been the largest demographic for medical treatment overdose in the last decade, with fatal overdoses nearly tripling in Suffolk county in the last two years alone. This influx of drugs has seen the most vulnerable and easily influenced hit the hardest. The ripples of this has hit their families, schools, and communities as a whole.
While use, abuse, and overdose has continued to increase there is has been one hopeful outcome. The availability of treatment centers and support groups has grown exponentially. We are now seeing the largest availability and deepest understanding of addiction in history. Addicts who were once relegated to prison or death as their only options have resources today to help. They have support systems all over the county and the country to provide life long support and understanding. There is no need for anyone to suffer alone. Our help line is open and we can help. Please call today.
