As you all know, substance use is on the rise in our communities. Overdoses have skyrocketed and the age of first use in NJ has gone down. You have seen the commercials and billboards, read it in the news, and you hear it on the radio. Chances are you personally know someone who battles addiction.
I have attached two helpful documents from Partnership for Drug Free-Kids. These documents can help guide families on what to look for and what to ask when searching for treatment options for their youth.
