Atlantic City, New Jersey

A resort city nestled along the coast of the Atlantic ocean, Atlantic City is world renowned for its casinos, beaches, and famous boardwalk.

Located in Atlantic County, Atlantic city has a population of almost 40,000 people, and the small town depends on tourism as the major drive for the economy. However, Atlantic City has seen a decline in tourism over the last 15 years, as more casinos continue to thrive elsewhere.

Nonetheless, Atlantic City still remains a tourist destination, as millions of visitors traverse the shores and boardwalk each year.

The city has two substance abuse treatment centers, AtlantiCare Health Services and John Brooks Recovery Center.

Substance Abuse In Atlantic City And Atlantic County

In 2016, 28% of the population in Atlantic City admitted to using drugs or alcohol. Cocaine, heroin, and marijuana were the top drugs abused.

Back in 2014, Atlantic county had the highest rate per capita of fatal heroin overdoses in New Jersey. As a state, New Jersey is known to have some of most potent heroin in the country.

Officials speculate the high fatality rate of heroin related overdoses in New Jersey may be related to young people first getting hooked on prescription medications, then turning to cheaper, and more accessible, heroin off the streets.
