New Jersey is in the midst of a opiate/heroin crisis. The crisis has vast implications for families of loved ones with psychiatric disabilities. More information for the public is desperately needed to understand the gravity of the crisis.
As part of work for the New Jersey Behavioral Health Planning Council, PyschOdyssey’s Tom Pyle has assembled charts and graphs that describe this urgent problem. Information has been sourced about the crisis at both the national and state level.
