Despite the large number of people in New Jersey needing help for an alcohol or drug problem, there are only about 360 rehab centers in the state. Given that there are so many New Jersey residents dependent on opiates such as heroin and prescription painkillers, too many have gotten stuck in opioid maintenance programs rather than entering a residential detox and treatment center.

Overall, there are 56 non-hospital residential rehabs, and there are another 16 inpatient hospital treatment centers in New Jersey.
