The struggle is real in the Garden State. And that may sound like joke, but it’s really fucking not. For the addict living in Jersey, the assault on them is daily and continuous, regardless of whether or not they are still getting high. Heroin is as readily accessible as a pork roll, egg and cheese from the local diner. It’s on every corner, and in every neighborhood. And quite possibly in your veins.
What’s not accessible and isn’t there, is help. What’s not accessible is getting your life back. What isn’t there, is the ability to find treatment, the light at the end of the tunnel, whatever you want to call it. Why? Because it is basically like trying to find a needle in a haystack (no pun intended.) New Jersey is the deep hole you can’t get out of. It is the room with no doors. It is the building on fire, with no exit signs and no firefighters are coming.
Let’s look at one of our own’s experience. As a NJ native with a habit that was massive enough to kill the average person 10 times over and back again, well, help wasn’t all that available. He refers to the whole process of getting help as the “Carrier-Oxford Shuffle”. Go to detox, get out, no beds available for treatment for a month (up to 3 months in the winter time) and he’s left with 5-7 days heroin free, but with relatively the same amount of hope that he had a week prior. None. The cycle continues over and over again, it’s a real life Groundhog Day, until he reaches a new bottom. Most of the time that bottom includes an all expenses paid trip to county jail: filled with all of the pleasant lifetime memories that come with heroin withdrawal. Every so often he would do a little too much, overdose and find himself in the local hospital – parents at his side (if he didn’t too too much damage on the last spur) wondering what to do next. Back to the “Shuffle”.
Eventually the entire purpose of your God forsaken addicted life, is to live, breathe and die as a New Jersey junkie. Making you just another number added to the statistics in YOUR home state which is already crippled under the weight of its heroin problem. Forget Governor Christies’ “Bridgegate,” this is the real scandal–thousands of hurting people making the pilgrimage from the parkway to Newark or the turnpike to Camden, actually believing in their hearts that there is no way out.
There is a way out. And it’s as easily accessible as a pork roll, egg, and cheese from the local diner, you just didn’t know. And now we are telling you. All you have to do is pick up the phone and call us. All you have to do is be willing to step outside your comfort zone that is New Jersey, that is home. While New Jersey isn’t the problem, it sure as hell isn’t part of the solution either. Getting out of the Carrier-Oxford Shuffle means leaving. It’s insanity to stay put in a place that has run you around in circles for days, weeks, months and even years. If you want to live your life differently, you have to do something differently. Unfortunately New Jersey has little to offer in the form of hope, happiness, or sobriety for those who are looking to put their monster in a cage. Getting help has to come from outside of the comfort zone. We aren’t saying to leave Jersey forever, we are just saying there is nil in the from of help there. If you are serious about getting yourself or your loved one the chance they really need and DESERVE, then it is time to do something.
There is probably no place like New Jersey when it comes to being an addict. So if you don’t want to be a drug fueled shell of a human being anymore than you get the hell out of town and save your life. We are here to help. You don’t have to keep riding the merry-go-round, we can help you get off of it. We can help you get your life back, you just have to let us.
