Share Article

Millennium Treatment Group will treat patients from New Jersey who are battling heroin addiction, which has become a full-blown epidemic in the Garden State.

New Jersey is in the midst of a full-blown heroin crisis. According to the New Jersey Attorney General, there were 449 overdose deaths from heroin and morphine in 2012, 591 deaths in 2013 and 380 deaths in the first six months of 2014.

While Millennium Treatment Group is located in Florida, people from New Jersey or any other state can receive treatment at Millennium’s drug and alcohol addiction facility, which features a certified and licensed professional team of clinicians that helps people recover from drug and alcohol addiction in a picturesque, state-of-the-art location.

Millennium Treatment Group has paid close attention to the problems in the state of New Jersey. Of the 8,300 New Jersey residents admitted to drug rehab programs for opiate addiction in 2012, more than 40 percent were younger than 25, says the New Jersey Attorney General's office. The number of drug-related deaths in the state has skyrocketed, rising 53 percent from 2010 to 2012 with more than two-thirds of those fatalities involving prescription drug abuse.

To help combat the expanding heroin problem in New Jersey, changes were made to the state’s Prescription Monitoring Program. The program was launched in 2012 and intended to track every prescription filled for controlled dangerous substances or human growth hormone in the state. Still, participation in this program is voluntary and only 18 percent of the state’s licensed prescribers and pharmacies have agreed to participate as of Feb. 2014.

Those from New Jersey, Florida or any other part of the country who are battling heroin and opiate addiction can contact the Millennium Treatment Group for help at 1-855-522-1994 or visit http://www.millenniumtreatmentgroup.com/.
