Opiate Rehab & Detox in New Jersey
Break Free from Opiate 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.
If you or someone you love is living with opiate addiction, we encourage you to get in touch with Turning Point, Inc. Change is possible – choose it today.

Heroin, The More Accessible Opiate
Prescription opiates are becoming more expensive to get on the street, leading many 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).
- 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 non-medically (CDC).
