Authored by Janelle Marshallick
As COVID-19 continued to rage across the country in 2021, another epidemic spread out of control: drug overdose deaths.
On the frontlines of the battle against the overdose epidemic in New Jersey was a rehabilitation center in Atlantic County.
The Recovery Centers of America at Lighthouse is among the premier treatment facilities for addiction to drugs and alcohol in South Jersey. Over the past two years, Lighthouse, based in Mays Landing, has seen a growing demand for its services, particularly among people who are first-time attendees of rehabilitation centers.
