While the opioid crisis in this country might be taking center stage, there are many other substances out there that are dangerous and can have very addictive properties. Let’s take a look at some of the more common substances that people get addicted to that may result in needing to go to the best New Jersey rehab.
While alcohol might be the most socially acceptable “drug” out there, it can also be one of the most addicting. In fact, outside of nicotine, addiction has the highest addiction numbers in the United States at 18 million and counting. The acceptance of drinking in society combined with the fact that it is incredibly easy to get can also make it hard to spot. Alcohol abuse has numerous negative consequences. In addition to deaths from liver disease and alcohol overdose, drunk driving claims thousands of lives every year.
This is the most popular one these days as far as what is being in reported in the news thanks to the crackdown of the opioid epidemic. Almost 2 million people find themselves addicted to painkillers. What makes this number particularly troubling is the fact that for many people addiction to painkillers can lead to an addiction to heroin. Painkillers can be expensive and tough to get, while heroin is cheaper and more readily available.
