Substance Abuse in New Jersey
New Jersey residents frequently abuse alcohol, prescription medications and illegal drugs. Some of the most common drugs in New Jersey include:
- Prescription opioids
While these may be the most popular drugs in New Jersey, residents also abuse Ecstasy, marijuana and synthetic drugs.
Cocaine is the most abused drug in New Jersey. The drug is easily smuggled into New Jersey ports from South America and Mexico. Many New York-based drug cartels often store their drugs in New Jersey. From there, the drugs are then transported to other parts of the country.
Crack, the freebase form of cocaine, is available throughout the state and is heavily abused.
Many drug companies are located in New Jersey and prescription drug abuse is rampant throughout the state. Percocet, OxyContin, Xanax, Vicodin and Hydrocodone are the most popular prescription drugs in New Jersey. They come into the state primarily from Canada and Mexico and recently counterfeit pills from Mexico have entered the state.
Residents have been abusing prescription drugs for years. In 2006, the number of overdoses, many fatal, linked to Fentanyl, helped start “Operation Undertaker.” The program was started to identify areas of drug abuse in the state.
Oftentimes, prescription painkillers are a gateway drug to heroin. Due to its high quality and low price, heroin is one of the most abused drugs in New Jersey. The majority of heroin comes into the state from the Caribbean.
Like many other states, New Jersey has a methamphetamine problem. Locally produced methamphetamine is on a small scale in New Jersey because of the lack of chemical starter ingredients. However, meth laboratories exist throughout the state.
In New Jersey, nearly 33 percent of people in rehab facilities are being treated for alcohol addiction. The majority of people being admitted for alcohol dependence are over the age of 18.
