Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance

Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration

New Jersey’s production of almost all garden vegetables, cranberries, blueberries, peaches, dairy products plus its booming tourist industry, has made it a resourceful state. On a narcotic wavelength, New Jersey has earned its place among the states with the lowest rates on drug use, tobacco use, alcohol use, and alcohol and drug abuse.

New Jersey also has an abundance of treatment facilities designed to serve those needing treatment for drug or alcohol addictions. The 2006 National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (NSSATS) survey cites that the number of treatment facilities in New Jersey was 351; 206 were private nonprofit; 121 were private for-profit; the rest were owned or operated by the federal, state, or local government. Between 2002 and 2006, the amount of treatment facilities in New Jersey increased from 315 to 351. This is attributed to the fact that there is an additional 42 private for-profit facilities.

In 2006, 302 facilities offered outpatient care, 67 offered residential care, and 37 offered opioid treatment programs, which included drug detox programs. Additionally, 365 physicians and 57 treatment programs were authorized to provide buprenorphine treatment. 56 percent of all these facilities received some type of funding from the federal, state, or local government. The 2006 NSSATS survey also shows New Jersey’s one-day census to have been 30,106 clients receiving treatment, with 26,699 participating in outpatient treatment; 2,111 of the total clients were under the age of 18.

Many children are naturally curious, hence drug experimentation sometimes ensue. It tends to start with marijuana use, and then a gradual pursuit for harder drugs (cocaine, meth, and heroin) often develops. Parents should keep a watchful eye out for changes in their children’s behavior–the tell-tale signs associated with drug abuse. For example, meth use can easily lead to meth addiction; however, before abuse or addiction occurs, symptoms such as increased physical energy may be evident.

In New Jersey, marijuana and heroin has seen a rise in their popularity. Over the last 15 years, there has been a consistent decrease in the amount of treatment admissions for these two substances. While alcohol-only admissions have decreased from 27 percent in 1992 to 18 percent in 2006, drug-only admissions have risen, doubling from 26 percent in 1992 to 51 percent in 2006. Equally troubling, but simultaneously comforting, is the fact that the number of admissions with drug-related psychological problems has doubled since 1992.

While it is good that many took the necessary steps to get help, it is discomfiting to know that because of alcohol or drug abuse this route had to be treaded.
