New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the U.S. with over 9 million residents occupying only 7,787 square miles of land area.  The state is home to more engineers and scientists per square mile than any other place on earth.  Located between Pennsylvania and New York, the state of New Jersey in the direct path of what is known as the “crossroads of the east.”  This corridor is responsible for most of the trafficking of cocaine, heroin, and other illicit drugs in the area.  

Residents and visitors of New Jersey enjoy a variety of historical sites, natural beauty, fine museums, quaint harbor towns, and gambling casinos.  But, the state also has some unfavorable activities taking place that most people want to avoid.  These incidents are a result of the illegal drug scene, and the state is struggling to control the ensuing crime and deaths.  Let’s take a look at some statistics on substance abuse in New Jersey to get a better idea of just how bad the situation has become.

Addiction Statistics in New Jersey

According to New Jersey Advance Media, more than 2,000 people died from drug overdoses in the state in 2016.  It has been said that if you put all of New Jersey’s heroin addicts in one place, it would be the state’s 4th largest city with about 128,000 residents.  Of course, this isn’t a possibility, but it gives a little perspective on how many heroin addicts there are in the state today.

Here are some other shocking statistics about the overall drug problems in New Jersey:

  • About 15% of high school students tried alcohol by age 13.
  • Heroin claimed more than 1,200 lives in New Jersey last year.
  • The rate of heroin abuse in NJ is three-times the national average.
  • Fentanyl killed more than 800 people.
  • More than 70 percent of teens who abuse prescription drugs reported getting their drugs from family members or friends.
  • In one year alone, more than 200 meth labs were seized on New Jersey, New York, and Connecticut.
  • About 39% of young people under age 17 have smoked marijuana.
  • Only 25% of people received the addiction treatment they needed.
  • Admissions for treatment in 2016:
    • Alcohol:  20,287
    • Cocaine/crack cocaine:  3587
    • Heroin: 32,369
    • Other opioids:  5,010
    • Marijuana:  11,004
    • Other drugs:  2,328

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has proposed the following initiatives to help combat addiction problems in his state:

  • Expand access to drug treatment facilities.
  • Increase access to preventive medical treatment.
  • Establish a 7-day limit on initial opiate prescriptions.
  • Lower the cost of Narcan.
  • Fund a public awareness campaign about opioid addiction prevention.
  • Expand support systems for individuals who overdose.

The governor had this to say about the situation:

It’s time we take the stigma off of addiction and treat it like the public health crisis that it is.  I will provide resources to fund treatments that we know can work, and make sure every resident has the ability to get back on his or her feet.”
