Opioid Addiction In Trenton

Trenton is the capital city of New Jersey, the county seat of Mercer County, and the tenth-largest city in the state with a population of about 84,000 people. Trenton is a battleground in the national opioid addiction epidemic and faces challenges with drug trafficking. In 2018, opioid and heroin overdoses claimed the lives of over 700 people in New Jersey by the month of August. In Trenton and Mercer County, there were 49 fatal overdoses in just the first four months of the year. According to the New Jersey state government, there were 2,750 fatal opioid overdoses in New Jersey in 2017, about half of which involved fentanyl, an opioid which is even more potent than heroin. The opioid epidemic in New Jersey is so serious that 44% of Trenton residents who sought treatment for addiction in 2017 sought treatment for opioid and heroin addiction, while 26% sought treatment for alcohol abuse.

As the crisis worsens, authorities in Trenton are beginning to dedicate more resources to saving lives from opioids. In 2018, the federal government gave New Jersey $30.6 million to fund initiatives to prevent overdoses and open more recovery centers in Trenton and throughout the state. The state government has contributed an additional $100 million to the fight against opioids, and in Mercer County, the police have begun to send opioid users to intensive drug treatment facilities rather than to jail. The New Jersey Department of Health is even considering allowing opioid users to manage their addiction with medical marijuana, which is legal in New Jersey, although there is currently no licensed dispensary in Trenton.
