Latest Data Shows New Jersey Counties Suffering the Fatal Consequences of Heroin Abuse and Addiction
Each year the NJ State Medical Examiner's Office releases data for deaths and their attributed causes. We reported on the 2013 data recently, and now the 2014 data is available showing deaths that involved heroin, on a county by county basis.
Sunrise Detox has opened 2 new medical detox centers in New Jersey, to help stem the growth of heroin and prescription painkiller addiction, and to help reduce the trauma to New Jersey, including overdose deaths.There are now three separate Sunrise Detox full-sized medical detox centers in New Jersey.
We have translated the raw data from the New Jersey State Medical Examiner's Office into an easy to read visualization. Each life lost to heroin in 2014 is represented by a figure on the graph. We have lined up the counties in order, showing the scale of heroin's impact on New Jersey. We have color-coded the NJ map and the chart, to reflect the numbers : Camden County lost 93 individuals to death by heroin, and Hunterdon County lost 4.
The darkest regions of the map suffered the largest numbers of deaths attributed at least in part to heroin.
