Heroin and opiate abuse rates continue to soar in New Jersey. An article in VICE News reports that law enforcement and public health officials have linked the rise in such drug use to the over prescription of painkillers. Once patients become addicted to painkillers, they turn to stronger narcotics to satisfy their addiction.
To combat the problem, last year Passaic County announced a new effort to keep prescription medicines away from youth. Project Medicine Drop Box helps families dispose of unneeded prescription medicines to keep them out of the medicine cabinet. The goal is to get to the root of the problem by making sure adolescents do not abuse prescription medicines and then move on to harder drugs.
Rehab To Treat Current Addicts
However salutary the purpose of Project Medicine Drop Box, we recognize that there is still are large numbers of current addicts that need help. Rehab programs are available in your area and we are here to help you or a loved one find the right program.
An addict has to recognize that they cannot overcome their addiction by him or herself. At the same time, addicts have to take the often difficult first step of recognizing that drugs or alcohol have taken control of their lives. They can then take the next step of reaching out for help.
When searching for an appropriate treatment program, it is important to recognize that we are all individuals that have our own needs. In some cases it is important for the addict to participate in a program where close friends and family can be with them to lend a hand at all times. In other cases it is more appropriate for the addict to work directly with medical and therapeutic professionals.
We help people in a non-judgmental way so they are comfortable coming forward for assistance. We are ready to help you on the road to recovery.
Your Rehab Experience Can Be Strictly Confidential
Along with the many struggles that those attending rehab must deal with, being wary of confidentiality is one that many addicts dwell on. It can be embarrassing to deal openly with an addiction, and it is your prerogative to be private about attending a treatment facility. As a solution, if you choose to travel to a treatment center for rehab, there is often less of a need to worry on this matter. For a period of time, you will be able to distance yourself from your place of employment or school and the often-prying eyes of those you know.
