Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Newark, New Jersey

The state of New Jersey is no stranger to the drug crisis plaguing America, and Newark is no exception. Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in New Jersey. In the last decade, there was a 700% increase in admissions to treatment programs. Since 2004, more than 14,000 New Jersey natives had fatal drug overdoses. Essex County, where Newark is located, has reported the highest number of drug-related deaths. The majority of Newark drug overdose victims (and drug consumers generally) are males between the ages of 22 to 54.

Newark’s Opioid Epidemic

Prescription opioids, such as Morphine, Tramadol, and OxyContin are administered to patients to sooth pain following major conditions or injuries. These drugs are popular for abuse because of the release of dopamine they initiate in the human brain, this causes many patients to become addicted and crave more. Patients recovering from severe injuries may also still suffer pain and seek a cheaper alternative once their supply runs out. As a result, many individuals transition to heroin from prescription drugs.

128,000 individuals have abused heroin across New Jersey in recent years, many in the Newark area. Newark has witnessed an increase of 17 % of heroin use in recent years, becoming one of the top cities in the New Jersey battling heroin abuse. Heroin is often used with cocaine to produce an even greater high, creating a potentially deadly combination.

Fentanyl, 50 times more potent than heroin, is increasing in popularity in Newark’s population. Fentanyl was responsible for 818 state-wide drug-related deaths in 2016.  These numbers are predicted to rise in the near future.

Finding Treatment for Addiction in Newark

Taking the first step to rid your mind and body from drugs is an empowering decision with many benefits. Before seeking treatment, individuals should keep in mind attempting to detox from drugs and alcohol without medical supervision can have highly uncomfortable effects. Getting treatment in a facility with the support of medical staff can make detox a better, safer, and more successful experience. Treatment facilities also can treat patients for underlying mental health conditions, like bipolar disorder or major depressive disorder which can contribute to chemical dependencies.

Newark residents should seriously consider attending rehab if they experience any of the following:

  • Finances going toward supporting drug or alcohol habits
  • Guilt or shame with drinking or abusing harmful chemicals
  • Hiding drugs and/or alcohol use
  • Being told how their actions are impacting their family or work
  • Noticeable personality changes when without drugs or alcohol
  • Being urged to get help
  • Apathy/lack of interest in everyday life
  • Losing jobs due to drug or alcohol habit
  • Violent behavior and incarceration due to drug/alcohol abuse

Traveling from Newark for Rehab

There is currently a shortage of rehab facilities in Newark, and people seeking treatment may get turned away. A lack of local available rehab facilities may require individuals seeking treatment to find help in other counties or cities. Patients seeking treatment can even consider traveling to other states.

Surrendering to healing in a new environment can provide the individual access to unique treatment methods not offered locally, including spiritual, traditional, and specialty treatments such as equine therapy. Travel also creates a central focus apt for recovery as patients have less distractions and feel committed to healing.
