Top Newark, NJ Addiction Recovery Centers: Reviews and Ratings

Newark has recently experienced many opioid overdoses, which are a part of the larger U.S. opioid crisis.

The majority of overdose deaths in Newark in 2017 were caused by prescription painkillers and illicit opioids such as heroin.1 In addition, roughly 51% of people who sought treatment in Newark rehab centers in 2016 were abusing heroin, and 44% were abusing other opiates.2

An opioid overdose can be caused by accidentally misusing prescription painkillers or by mixing opioids with alcohol or benzodiazepines such as Xanax. An overdose can also happen if you use someone else’s medication or use street drugs like heroin, which can be laced with fentanyl or other potent drugs.3

Signs of an opioid overdose include:3

  • Slowed or stopped breathing.
  • Slowed or stopped heart rate.
  • Blue or purple tinge to lips and fingernails.
  • Pale and/or clammy skin.
  • Gurgling or choking sounds.
  • Vomiting.
  • Loss of consciousness.
  • Limpness of the body.

Call emergency services immediately if you think you may be witnessing an opioid overdose and perform CPR if the person’s breathing has slowed or stopped.3

To prevent an opioid overdose, take medicines exactly as prescribed by your doctor and avoid mixing these drugs with other substances.3 Also, disposing of unused medications properly in the household trash or toilet or bringing them to medicine take-back locations are good preventative measures.4
