Substance Abuse In Barnegat And Ocean County


In late 2017, Ocean county was one of several counties across 16 states to enter into what's known as the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas program, or HIDTA. This federally funded program offers assistance to areas that are at risk of drug trafficking.


Perhaps due to the influx of drugs trafficked across the area, Ocean county has one of the highest numbers of overdose deaths in the state of New Jersey. In 2015 the county had 157 heroin related fatalities, the second highest in the state, and recorded 200 more in 2016.


Only 28 areas country wide, including the territory Puerto Rico, are designated HIDTA.


Barnegat may be a risk for drug trafficking and substance abuse because it’s located between a hub of intersecting highways and interstates, likely increasing the chances drugs being trafficked through the area.


Ocean county and Barnegat may be a crossroads at the epicenter of the opioid epidemic.
