East Orange, New Jersey, located in Essex County, is the home to just over 64,000 people. The city is made up of five different wards that all have a small, yet friendly community feeling to them. Founded in 1863, East Orange officially became a city in 1899. But like most of the other major and growing cities in New Jersey, East Orange is affected by the rising heroin abuse numbers that is over-shadowing the state.
There were 177 cases of heroin abuse in 2013 according to a study conducted by Division of Addiction Services in the New Jersey Department of Human Services. Heroin is a drug that you don’t want to see your loved ones get involved with. An addiction can be developed to heroin within a matter of days. It is important, if you know someone who is regularly using heroin, to step in to hold an intervention so that you can point out the dangers for this drug.
It does not matter what substance your loved one is abusing, if they are struggling you need to help them. The main goal of an intervention is to get your loved one to realize that they need help. Do not get discouraged if the first, second or even third intervention does not work. Sometimes, it takes more than one intervention for your loved one to answer the wakeup call.
Heroin abuse can be a hard addiction to kick. It takes proper detox, under medical supervision, in order to take the right step toward recovery. After detox, rehab is the next step. Rehab is a hard process to get through, as stress builds up it is harder to knock your craving to use again.
Substance abuse is a complicated disease of the brain. Once a person becomes addicted to a substance, he or she will always be managing the disease. Instead of carrying around a candy bar like some diabetics, or an inhaler like asthmatics, people in recovery bring their self-mastered skills with them in their daily life so that they are always prepared for an unexpected trigger.
