Heroin abuse and addiction is not gradually becoming an epidemic in the Garden State. It is an epidemic right now, according to one state legislator who has introduced a bill that provides stricter penalties for heroin-related crimes.
Attorney General Eric Holder is calling the increase in heroin-related deaths an "urgent public health crisis" and says first responders should carry with them an antidote to reverse the effects of an overdose.
A new study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention finds most people who abuse prescription painkillers are getting them for free from friends and relatives, not rogue doctors or the black market.
Seeking out addiction treatment facilities is something few families plan for, but with a heroin epidemic raging in parts of the state, treatment is becoming a difficult decision for more and more people.
