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
Secondary risk factors and complications that make an overdose more likely include:4
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.

I was in the treatment facility almost two years ago. I completed and was doing great. Unfortunately I relapsed and was fortunate to get into the program again. Well I messed up and wasn't ready. So unfortunately for me I left. Now I am no longer allowed to seek treatment at Seabrook which is unfortunate for me. It's been almost two years. I would think I would have been forgiven. I'm a addict. But I reached out for help and was told no. I don't understand that. Isn't that what this facility is all about? Helping the addict work on getting clean. I'm killing myself and my mom. I'm lost with no help. I just want you to know I needed a chance and didn't think I would be banned because of a stupid decision on my part to leave. I just want you to know you could be a chance for someone to make it or die. Just wanted to let you know.
I absolutely had a wonderful experience with everyone at RAC. Alyssa was an extremely patient and kind therapist. Everyone was great there. I cannot thank them enough for all of their help.
It was an excellent experience at a Endeavor House and I’ve benefited greatly from my time at Endeavor House. The staff are amazing people and I can’t thank them enough.
