New Jersey, NJ, 04/19/2018 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Elizabeth, New Jersey is the county seat and the largest city in Union County. The city has 124,949 residents and is located six miles south of Newark and about 17 miles southwest of New York City. It is bordered to the west by Roselle and Roselle Park, to the southwest by Linden, and northwest by Hillside and Union. It is just across the Newark Bay from Bayonne and Staten Island.

Elizabeth is the fourth largest city in the Garden State and is easily accessible by land, sea, and air, which also makes it easy for drugs like heroin to be moved through it. Still, it is set in a beautiful landscape, even being named one of “America’s 50 Greenest Cities” in 2008.

It’s unfortunate that such a beautiful area is also home to problems like drug trafficking and gang violence, even warranting the creation of law enforcement task forces to combat those challenges. Along with those types of criminal activity, there is a very serious drug abuse and addiction problem that typically follows them. Elizabeth accounts for 36% of Union County’s drug and alcohol treatment admissions. It is also the setting for many heroin overdose deaths – as many as triple the national average, every year.

In a report from the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services in the New Jersey Department of Human Services, admissions to drug and alcohol treatment programs have stayed steady for the last two years, with heroin and other opioid drugs being the most frequent problem for clients. Alcohol and marijuana are cited as the second and third most abused drugs. The opioid epidemic has become a serious public health concern, with its overdose deaths, increasing numbers of Hepatitis C infections due to dirty needles, and increasing crime rates, for the whole country, and Elizabeth is no exception.  

Fortunately, there are numerous treatment, prevention, education, and recovery programs within New Jersey to help Elizabeth residents conquer their addictions. Serenity At Summit offers detox, outpatient, and inpatient drug treatment programs in nearby Union, New Jersey. Attending a holistic rehabilitation program is the most effective way to deal with addiction and underlying psychological or psychiatric issues that may be present.
