Linden, NJ residents are just as likely as anyone else to suffer fatal consequences from an overdose. Even if you’ve used drugs for years without incident, it doesn’t mean that you aren’t at risk for experiencing a life-threatening overdose. Opioids, including heroin and prescription painkillers, caused the majority of overdose deaths in 2016.1 Around 40% of all Union County admissions into substance abuse treatment sites listed heroin or other opiates as their primary issue.2
Some secondary complications can significantly increase your risk of an overdose, but many instances are due to variations in the strength of street drugs or addition of dangerous substances, such as fentanyl. In fact, synthetic opioids, such as fentanyl, were involved in nearly half of all overdose deaths reported during 2016.3

Receiving treatment at a Linden rehab can prevent you from overdosing, as well as many other negative consequences of drug or alcohol abuse. If your opioid dependence is severe, you may need to go through a medical detox program before starting inpatient or outpatient rehab.

When my family convinced me to get help for my addiction, I didn\'t know where to go or who to turn to. My sister picked Sequoia Recovery for me and I was skeptic at first because I had to leave home but I\'m glad I went here. When I got there the staff was very welcoming. I didn\'t know what to expect but my counselor and therapist sat with me and together we put together a plan specifically for me. Yeah it was tough at first but in reality by the 2nd week of treatment I was really focused and ready to get clean. I would recommend this place.
Victory Bay is an amazing place, with a great staff that will go above and beyond to meet its client's needs.
