Opiate Rehab & Detox in New Jersey
Break Free from Painkiller Addiction Today!
Pain is a part of life. Because we have pain, we have opiates to help us
cope. After a car accident or a serious sports injury, many individuals
are prescribed opiate painkillers by their doctors. The trouble is that
many become addicted to these opiate painkillers. Opiate use doesn’t
always expire when the prescription does.
Prescription opiates are becoming more expensive to get on the street,
leading many painkiller-addicted people to turn to heroin, which is much
cheaper and usually more readily available (NIH). Links between prescription painkillers and heroin have also been studied
and established (SAMHSA).
If you or someone you love is living with an opiate addiction, we encourage
you to get in touch with Turning Point in New Jersey today.
Change is possible – choose it today.
In New Jersey, an estimated 52-71 out of every 100 people are prescribed
opiates. That means that, at any given time, more than 70% of the New
Jersey population can have at least one prescription painkiller (CDC).
According to the IMS National Prescription Audit in 2012, 63 out of every
100 New Jersey residents was prescribed at least one painkiller, but due
to nonmedical uses, prescription sharing, and people with multiple prescriptions,
the number of people on painkillers could be much higher (IMS National Prescription Audit).
Prescription opiate addiction has become an exceedingly dangerous problem
for women in particular, with more than 48,000 dying of opiate overdoses
between 1999 and 2010 (CDC).
As of 2012, 2.1 million U.S. residents live with substance use disorders
specifically for opioid pain relievers. An estimated 467,000 of those
are heroin addicts (NSDUH).
The number of opiate-related overdose deaths has quadrupled in the U.S.
since 1999 (SAMHSA).
15,000 people on average die every year because of a painkiller overdose,
and approximately 1 out of every 20 people in the U.S. use painkillers
Detoxing from Opiates
