Venice Gondoliers May Soon Face Drug And Alcohol Testing
Date:7/11/2013

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

In an article by BBC News Europe (7/5), Venice's gondoliers may face breathalysers, it was reported that in Venice, Italy, the city's gondoliers have been engaging in inappropriate behavior that has upset many including the president of the gondolier's association, Nicola Falconi. According to Italian news agency Ansa, he is requesting that the gondoliers face drug and alcohol testing. Falconi said it was important to tackle the "ever-mounting problem."

People from all walks of life, living anywhere in the world, can become drug or alcohol dependent. In addition to suffering from a long list of harmful physical effects, they can lose their home, family, job and feeling of self worth. Those experiencing the detrimental effects of substance abuse should check into a 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village.

At Harbor Village, individualized programs have been developed by a team of medical experts to help clients achieve recovery from both drugs and alcohol. Located in sunny Miami, Florida, the facility allows each client to experience private drug rehab in a luxury, state-of-the art environment. Clients are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the personalized support of a friendly, knowledgeable staff.

As reported in Venice's gondoliers may face breathalysers, a young Venetian man was filmed stripping and diving into a canal as part of a hazing initiation. He was seeking to become a “ganser” or gondolier's assistant. For awhile, footage of the incident appeared on YouTube but has since been removed.

The Venice city council said that gondoliers "represent Venice to the world" and as such should respect the "human spirit of Venetian citizenship." Falconi said that he would be asking the council members to introduce random drug and alcohol testing for all Venetian water craft personnel, "from water-bus drivers to ship hands."

“If you allow a substance abuse issue to worsen, you will be endangering your life as well as the life of others. Get the help you need by checking into a detox center such as Harbor Village,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
