Serenity At Summit provides drug and alcohol addiction treatment, medically supervised detox and residential treatment

UNION, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / April 20, 2018 / Trenton is the capital of New Jersey and the county seat of Mercer County, with a population of 84,913. It is a city that is rich in history, even once briefly the nation's capital. Now, it's home to many historical sites and museums. Trenton's metropolitan area is categorized as part of the New York metropolitan area by the U.S. Census Bureau, however, it actually borders the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania metro area.

The city of Trenton is a modern urban area that has been hit significantly with problems surrounding substance abuse and addiction. More than half of Mercer County's drug and alcohol treatment admissions in 2015 and 2016 were Trenton residents, according to the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services in the New Jersey Department of Human Services. Marijuana, alcohol, and heroin (respectively) were reported as the primary substances of abuse in 2015, with heroin jumping to the top spot in 2016.

The opioid epidemic that is rampant in the U.S. is particularly bad in the state of New Jersey, with more than 140,000 residents battling addiction statewide. Additionally, more than 6,000 New Jersey residents have died from heroin overdoses since 2004. Trenton is one of the cities hit hardest with this epidemic. In fact, the city was highlighted in a report called, "Scenes from an Epidemic: A Report on the SCI's Investigation of Prescription Pill and Heroin Abuse," released recently by the state Commission of Investigation, that cited the city as a fertile ground for drug addicts and members of street gangs who distribute heroin throughout the state.

While it may be difficult for many of the residents in Trenton who are abusing drugs or alcohol, there is hope for recovery. Addiction is a disease that is treatable and manageable when specialized care is sought. Often times, it's recommended that substance abusers and those who are addicted seek treatment in an inpatient drug and alcohol addiction treatment program. Trenton, and New Jersey in general, offer many resources for residents in the throes of addiction.

At Serenity At Summit, there is help available in the form of detox, outpatient, and residential programs. We help teens and adults learn new coping and life skills that lay the foundation for long-term recovery from drugs and alcohol.
