SAN DIEGO, Jan. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — National drug news provider TheRecover.com completes resource page for those looking for help for drug abuse in New Jersey. The new page lists New Jersey statistics and laws surrounding drug and alcohol abuse within the state.
Finding help for substance abuse in New Jersey may have become a bit easier for those searching. By utilizing the new page from the trusted news source about addiction, consumers can find information about drug abuse statistics in New Jersey, as well and possible treatment options.
Like most of America, New Jersey residents struggle with opioids which include illegal drugs, such as heroin, and legal prescription painkillers like hydrocodone and oxycodone. In addition, New Jersey residents also suffer from addictions to alcohol and other drugs as well, and some of the addicts abuse multiple substances at the same time.
The CDC states that New Jersey has had significant increases in drug overdose death rates from 2015 to 2016 and that opioids, including prescription and illicit are the main source of drug overdose deaths. Opioids were involved in 42,249 deaths in 2016, and opioid overdose deaths were five times higher in 2016 than 1999. Deaths from drug overdoses reached 2,000 in 2016, killing more people than car accidents, guns, and suicides combined.
The governor Chris Christie was quoted, “I don’t think the American people can sit by and tolerate this level of death for much longer.” Drug treatment programs in New Jersey are located across the state, and by using the new page provided by The Recover visitors can navigate to different facilities and research their accommodations. Finding the best drug treatment center in New Jersey should be the goal for long lasting recovery. Not all New Jersey treatment centers are alike, and doing the research before someone enters into a treatment center can make all the difference.
