COME SEE FOR YOURSELF WHY NEW JERSEY DRUG TREATMENT IS GREAT

Whether your impressions of New Jersey come from The Jersey Shore or ballads from Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi, there’s no denying that New Jersey is in a league of its own when it comes to Americana glory.

Located in the Tri-State area, New Jersey is a hub of cultural diversity and invention. Home to the second largest Jewish and Muslim populations in the country, New Jersey is also an epicenter for Italians, Peruvians, and various Asian ethnic groups, among the rest of the melting pot.

Thanks to the legacy of Thomas Edison and Ivy League school Princeton University, the Garden State is also a capital for scientists, engineers, and inventors. You can thank the state of New Jersey as the birthplace of FM radio, the motion picture camera (and the drive-in), cranberry sauce, the postcard, the boardwalk, saltwater taffy, the zipper, and the ice cream cone. So, you’re welcome.

So, if you’re looking for New Jersey drug rehabs, you’ll be sure to meet new, exciting people and get some of the latest addiction treatment methods. Have questions on what treatment options are best for you? Call our 24-hour helpline at (855) 619-8070 and one of our addiction specialists will assist you right away.

Drugs Most Commonly Abused in New Jersey

While reality television shows that take place in New Jersey, such as The Real Housewives of New Jersey, may glorify excessive drinking or lightly touch upon substance abuse, the reality of addiction for New Jerseyans can be far darker and tragic.

Substances found to be most commonly abused in New Jersey are:

  • Alcohol
  • Heroin
  • Prescription opioids
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine

In 2015, an investigation by NJ Advance Media revealed that at least 128,000 people were actively using heroin in New Jersey. And since 2014, naloxone or Narcan, an antidote that reverses the effects of opioid overdose, has been administered over 18,000 times. Yet, there were 1,587 drug overdose deaths in 2015, of which 961 were related to heroin and 417 involved fentanyl.

The amount of people seeking treatment for heroin has increased in New Jersey, with some communities showing over 50 percent increases in addiction treatment admissions related to the drug. Heroin addiction is no longer considered to be exclusive to urban parts of New Jersey, now extending to suburban and rural parts of the state, in which many people report starting with prescription opioid addiction before switching to heroin.

In 2015, 40 percent of substance abuse treatment admissions (27,621 people) in New Jersey reported heroin as the primary drug of abuse compared to 26 percent of treatment admissions (17,785 people) reporting alcohol as the primary drug of abuse.

More than 6,000 people have died in New Jersey because of heroin overdoses since 2004, and with numbers of active users and opioid-related overdoses increasing, it is urgent that people seek treatment right away. If you or someone you know are struggling with substance abuse, especially to heroin, please call our 24-hour helpline at (855) 619-8070 for help in finding a treatment center.
