Hunterdon County recognized International Overdose Awareness Day on August 31st and Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners Director Susan J. Soloway attended an Open House and Ribbon Cutting at the Flemington Treatment Services Center, while Deputy Director John E. Lanza visited Prevention Resources, also in Flemington, to honor lives lost and to help reduce the stigma surrounding drug use and addiction.
Director Soloway, Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker and Senator Christopher ‘Kip’ Bateman, at the Flemington Treatment Services Open House, came together to raise community awareness and support the treatment center which offers medication-assisted treatment options as well as individual, group, and family therapy choices for patients seeking help.
Deputy Director Lanza joined Hunterdon County Prosecutor Renée M. Robeson and countless guests at Prevention Resources’ Open-Door Recovery Center to
remember those who have passed or suffered permanent injury because of a drug overdose.
The Hunterdon County Commissioner Board is proud to be a part of a community which supports people recovering from addiction and offers programs to comfort those who have lost loved ones due to overdose death.
