  1. Florida By: Mike Trim 06/01/2011 – Riviera Beach considers temporary halt to substance abuse facility applications

    “RIVIERA BEACH – The city of Riviera Beach is considering to refuse accepting applications for substance abuse service facilities for one year.

    The item is on Wednesday night’s city council agenda.

    The city won’t comment on why this proposal is being made.

    A Singer Island homeowner believes she knows what could have led to the proposal.

    Draga Lindblom says her neighborhood has changed since retiring here years ago.

    “From a quiet resort time and a residential area, now it’s going into just having a different look,” said Lindblom.

    Lindblom says drug and alcohol treatment facilities, two of which are a few blocks away, are the reason.

    Patients coming in and out of the facility can sometimes causes problems leading to police calls, according to Lindblom. ”

  2. This show highlights the problems caused by forced NA and NA attendance by the court system and probation system of Volusia County Florida. In the Daytona Beach area, probationers are routinely mandated to attend these groups and must do it or violate probation and be put in jail. While it is true that the majority of people in these groups are harmless, many “hardened criminals” are forced to attend by the justice system. These “hardened criminals” are most likely the cause of problems in the meetings.

    This is a true story of how Sunrise Park on Riverside Drive in Holly Hill Florida effected the lives of those living and working there when “hardened criminals” were forced to go to AA and NA meetings around Daytona Beach. These meetings are organized by NA and AA central offices in the area and are very large meetings at crucial times of business and family time in that area. “Hardened criminals” go to these meetings to have thier court slips signed. It will effect the “tourist industry” in the long run and if left unchecked could help to plunge the local economy into an even worse state. To address the problems of NA and AA meetings http://www.nadaytona.org/ has been formed and is actively working on a solution to this problem with state and local authorities. Any help or information, I am sure will be greatly appreciated.
