In Response to Recent Overdoses, Gloucester Police Chief Leonard Campanello Made a Plea this Sunday, Urging Addicts to Seek Help
Campanello made a post on Facebook this Sunday, urging struggling addicts not to be afraid or ashamed to seek help. He promises the department will help anyone who is ready to get help. Even those who aren’t ready to change will be put in contact with someone in recovery who can help. The police chief makes plea after many local and national drug overdoses have taken the life of compromised citizens.
Campanello said “Some will say ‘oh its a bad batch’. Bullshit…there is no good batch of heroin. You are important and worth it. There is no incentive or punishment that this disease responds to. We cannot say ‘Do this for your family or your child’ or “If you don’t stop we’re going to arrest you”. We know that doesn’t work. But we know what can work. We accept you. You don’t want this. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you when you want it. There is recovery and a new life that can and should be yours. You deserve it. Your life is more meaningful than your death.” Heroin addiction treatment can be yours.
Police Chief Makes Plea and Helps Addicts
The Gloucester Police Department has gained national recognition for their new “Angel Program”, which allows anyone seeking help the ability to walk into the Gloucester Police Department and receive immediate access to help to get treatment, without facing any criminal charges. This new program was established last June and has since helped over 375 addicts seek treatment for their condition and partnered with several addiction treatment services across the country. Gloucester recently saw four heroin overdoses occur in just 24 hours. All of these individuals were revived using Narcan, which the Police Department has made more readily available through their new initiative.
