  • (1888PressRelease) September 11, 2011 - Treating individuals for alcohol and drug addiction is a big business on Long Island, NY. Frank Buonanotte is the former CEO of Crossings Recovery Centers, which was the largest provider of substance abuse treatment on Long Island and possibly even New York State. Crossings had a particular program that provided housing and treatment to homeless individuals who were addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. This program helped to rehabilitate these individuals and by the time they completed the program, they were off drugs and alcohol, off public assistance, provided job readiness training and placed in permanent housing where they weren't draining the system of tax payer's funds. More importantly, this program transformed homeless alcoholics and drug addicts into healthy, working, tax paying citizens.

    It was a wonderful program that helped many people get back on their feet and recover from the destructive grasp of addiction. Most of these individuals were insured by Medicaid, which is of course a State-funded health insurance plan. Since there were so many people on Long Island that needed these services, the program found itself on the radar of politicians in charge of maintaining State funds. Even though Crossings was providing a legal and much needed service to the community, it cost the State money.

    New York State bulldog, Henry Zwack, was put in charge of eliminating the problem. Since Crossings wasn't doing anything illegal, Zwack had to devise a series of diabolical schemes to wipe Crossings from existence. Being well versed in abusing the political power that he was given, Zwack and his staff were able to distort the law in order to shut the clinics down. As a result, many patients were put out on the street but the State saved the money. This was a tragic day in New York history but well covered up by Henry Zwack.

    Since then alcohol and drug related crimes and deaths have significantly increased on Long Island but nobody has been able to put together that maybe it's because the largest provider of addiction treatment was unjustly shut down by New York State. Crossings also ran the only dual focus substance abusing sex offender program on Long Island. To date, this population has gone untreated on Long Island to the extent that they were at Crossings.

    Despite the unfortunate set of circumstances that occurred back in 2006, Frank Buonanotte has founded another company which imports a particular type of medicinal honey from New Zealand. This company is called Honeymark International. In addition to the importation of this honey into the U.S., Honeymark also manufactures medical, personal care and skin care products containing this honey.

    Manuka honey from New Zealand has become world renowned for its ability to eradicate antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria that are responsible for causing life threatening infections, such as MRSA and VRE. Manuka honey is also considered to be a natural treatment solution for certain conditions such as stomach ulcers, acid reflux disease, gastrointestinal disorders and a wide range of skin conditions.

    Frank Buonanotte is still in the business of helping people, but this time in an industry that is less corrupt and susceptible to interference by politicians that abuse power. Honeymark products can be purchased online at or in retail stores across the country.
