Mays Landing, NJ – The nation’s drug-related overdose and death epidemic continues to worsen. Driven by illicit fentanyl, fentanyl analogs, methamphetamine and cocaine, there is an urgent need, according to the American Medical Association, to access evidence-based care for substance use disorders, pain and harm reduction measures.
The numbers say it all – more than 96,000 people died of drug overdoses during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s an increase of almost 30 percent in just one year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It’s also the largest single-year increase in drug overdose deaths ever reported in the United States. John Brooks Recovery Center (JBRC) sees this firsthand as it continues to expand its services and hours to address the growing need for recovery services.
JBRC provides a full array of treatment services for individuals suffering from substance use disorders, including alcohol, cocaine, amphetamine and opioid use disorders. To continue to address spiraling trends, JBRC has expanded its Outpatient Services at 660 Black Horse Pike in Pleasantville and 1931 Bacharach Boulevard in Atlantic City. All admissions take place in Pleasantville – Monday through Friday from 6am to 5pm and Monday through Saturday from 5pm to 11pm. Intake appointments can now be scheduled by calling 609-345-2020, ext. 6182, 6180 or 6179. Through JBRC’s Expanded Hours Program services are available Monday through Saturday 6am to 12pm and 5pm to 11pm.
