Millville Addiction Treatment Centers

Heroin abuse is a real concern throughout the country, including Millville, New Jersey. Learning more about this substance use disorder, including the statistics and common symptoms, can help someone seek help when needed.

In 2016, 243 of the 492 Millville residents who were admitted to substance abuse treatment centers used heroin as their primary drug of choice.1 The previous year, heroin overdoses accounted for 16 of 38 drug-related fatalities that occurred in Cumberland County where Millville is located.2

Some people migrate to heroin from prescription opioids because it is cheaper and easier to obtain on the illegal market.3,4 Those who abuse heroin might experience some of the following short- and long-term effects:5

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Stomach cramps
  • Insomnia
  • Cloudy mental state
  • Heart-related infection (lining and valves)
  • Significant itchiness

Heroin use may also permanently damage the liver, lungs, brain, and kidneys.5 Furthermore, if taken in high doses, overdose might occur, which can result in death.5 Medication assisted treatment approaches can be tailored to the drug user’s specific needs to help people overcome their opioid dependence. Medications such as buprenorphine and methadone might be administered to assist with unpleasant withdrawal symptoms.5 Behavioral therapies, such as contingency management, may also be used.5
