Fort Lee Addiction Treatment Centers

In Fort Lee, New Jersey, drug and alcohol abuse is a problem for many residents. In 2016, 1,314 people in Bergen County New Jersey (where Fort Lee is located), were admitted to substance abuse treatment for alcohol-related problems.1 That same year, 1,204 people were admitted for heroin abuse.1

There are a variety of consequences associated with abusing these substances, so it’s important to be aware of them.

Although it’s technically a legal substance for people older than 21 in the United States, alcohol carries a lot of risk. With long-term use, it can lead to the following serious health problems, among others:2 

  • Liver disease
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Dementia
  • Learning problems

Similarly, heroin can cause many health issues, especially with long-term use. Though it is an opioid and an illegal street drug, it is frequently used, despite the dangers and potential health consequences associated with it, which can include:3,4 

  • Neuronal and hormonal imbalances.
  • Loss of white matter in the brain.
  • Pneumonia.
  • Tuberculosis.
  • Collapsed veins.
  • Hepatitis B and C.
  • HIV.

With this type of serious potential harm, abusing these substances should not be taken lightly.
