Clifton City Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

In Clifton City, NJ, substance abuse and addiction are causing serious problems for residents. One especially troublesome substance is heroin, which accounted for 37% of all substance abuse treatment admissions in the city in 2013.1 This number is particularly concerning because heroin is extremely dangerous and addictive.

Chronic heroin abuse can lead to addiction, which is a compulsive cycle of drug abuse regardless of negative consequences. Additionally, the drug causes physiological dependence, which can then lead to distressing withdrawal symptoms with the sudden cessation of use. These symptoms may include:2

  • Runny nose.
  • Vomiting.
  • Diarrhea.
  • Muscle and joint pain.
  • Depression.
  • Anxiety.
  • Insomnia.

People who abuse heroin are also at risk of other serious problems, such as contracting HIV or hepatitis C, clogged blood vessels, and abscesses if they inject the drug. Other potential health problems include heart, kidney, and liver disease.2 An overdose can be deadly, and these occur more frequently now that many dealers are cutting heroin with the even more potent drug, fentanyl. Still, those who become addicted to the drug often struggle to quit on their own.

This is why treatment in a Clifton rehab facility is so essential to recovery. You can find out more about treatment centers near you or across the country when you search our directory pages. Remember, you are not alone—help is available.
