New Jersey is a northeastern state just across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan, New York City. Nearby Ellis Island is mostly part of New Jersey, as is the most popular departing port to Liberty Island, home of the Statue of Liberty monument. New Jersey is well known for its 130 miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. With a population of nine million, New Jersey's capital city of Trenton is just across the Delaware River from Pennsylvania.
New Jersey is in the grip of the opioid crisis ravaging the northeastern and Appalachian states. While it is not in the top-ten states with the highest opioid-overdose death rates, New Jersey is facing another crisis: the lack of sufficient addiction treatment facilities and services to accommodate the growing opioid concerns.
According to the 2016 New Jersey Substance Abuse Monitoring System, 27 percent of admissions were for alcohol as the primary drug of abuse, while 50 percent were for heroin or other opioids. The report also revealed that referrals to New Jersey addiction treatment programs come from the criminal justice system and self-referrals at an equal rate of 29 percent, which make up the largest percentage of referrals. The next largest source comes from addiction services programs within the state.
The opioid overdose death rate in New Jersey is among several other states over the national average of 13.3 deaths per 100,000 people. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)reports that 2016 opioid overdose death rates in New Jersey were 16 deaths per 100,000 and that providers in the state wrote 55.0 prescriptions per 100 people in 2015, which was well below the national average of 70.0 prescriptions per 100 people.
