In an article by The Inquirer (7/12), titled Report: Pill mills, addiction thrive in N.J., in the state of New Jersey, drug addiction has grown to epidemic proportions, surpassing the heroin crisis of the 1960s and '70s, according to Lee Seglem, assistant director of the state's Commission of Investigation.
In a report issued by the Commission, it was found that a system of dishonest physicians have created a tremendous, widespread increase of painkillers and heroin, including the growing appearances of open-air drug markets in cities and at malls.
Prescription drug abuse usually starts with one doctor authorized prescription and can escalate to a life threatening problem. Only a certified, 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village is qualified to assist clients who are suffering from prescription drug issues.

According to Report: Pill mills, addiction thrive in N.J., in 2011, 1,008 drug-related deaths were reported in New Jersey, which was a 20% gain compared to 2010. According to the New Jersey Medical Examiner's Office, close to 50% were people 25 or younger.
