The National Survey On Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) is an agency that annually surveys each state in order to measure the prevalence of drug and alcohol use. They also seek to measure mental health. They send out questionnaires to individuals 12 and older, 12-17, 18 -25 and 26 and older. Their goal is to get information about illicit drug and alcohol use in a number of categories. They take this information and make it available to each state so that they have some idea about what initiatives and programs are working or not working. Individual states can then take action if necessary. New Jersey rehab facilities often use this information to learn what drugs are used heavily and who is using them, so that they can prepare targeted and effective programs.

While a particular state may have drug problems unique to it, there are some pretty universal problems as it concerns drug and alcohol use. Across the nation, there has been an increase in the use of methamphetamines (meth) and prescription drugs.

Methamphetamines are a very powerful drug that turns people into addicts really fast. In a matter of mere months, an individuals’ appearance can change very drastically. Individuals hooked on meth, need immediate intervention. Drug rehab centers in New Jersey can attest to this.

Prescription drug use by people who have no known medical problems has also sky rocketed. Pain relievers and anti-anxiety medications tend to be the drugs of choice. They are so much in demand amongst those that abuse them there they often go to extreme measures to obtain them. Prescription forgery, pharmacy break-ins and doctor shopping are all methods used by addicts and users to get possession of these drugs. They can also be purchased by drug dealers. Rehab centers in New Jersey are treating an increasing number of individuals for prescription medication addiction.

Crack cocaine is one of the most popular drugs in the state of New Jersey. It is readily available throughout the state and is used heavily by those in the lower income population. Heroin is also a very prevalent drug. For those between the ages of 18 and 25, the usage rates of heroin are twice the national average. This is according to the State of New Jersey Department of Human Services – Division on Addiction Services. Heroin was also responsible for the admissions of 20,000 individuals into New Jersey drug rehab facilities in 2006. This accounted for over 40% of all admissions that year. The heroin found in New Jersey is quite pure and inexpensive, making it the ideal, albeit dangerous, drug for many people.
