While it may be difficult for many of the residents in Bayonne who are abusing drugs or alcohol, there is hope for recovery
UNION, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / June 6, 2018 / Bayonne, New Jersey is located in Hudson County on a peninsula that is between Newark Bay, the Kill Van Kull strait, and New York Bay. It is just nine miles southeast of Newark and ten miles southwest of New York City. Its population is 63,024, a statistic that has shown consistent growth since the early 1990s.
Bayonne shares a border with Jersey City by land and New York's Staten Island by bridge. It is considered a modern urban city with manufacturing, distribution, and maritime industries being the main supporters of the economy there.
Hudson County, where Bayonne is located, accounts for nearly two-thirds of New Jersey's drug and alcohol treatment facility admissions, making it the county with more admissions than any other county in the state. Bayonne, specifically, accounts for about 11% of admissions each year, according to the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services in the New Jersey Department of Human Services. The biggest substance abuse problems in Bayonne can be attributed to opioid drug use, followed by marijuana and alcohol. While all three continue to increase, year over year, the fastest growing problem is with opioids. Between 2015 and 2016, admissions to addiction treatment facilities for opioid use has increased by over 14%, while other drug abuse admission rates have only increased an average of 7%.
While it may be difficult for many of the residents in Bayonne who are abusing drugs or alcohol, there is hope for recovery. Addiction is a disease that is treatable and manageable when specialized care is sought. Often times, it's recommended that substance abusers and those who are addicted seek treatment in an inpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment program.
