A revamped version of Reach NJ, an addiction taskforce initiated by former Governor Chris Christie, has received significant investment from the Murphy administration, according to NJ Spotlight. The campaign will include a series of print and online advertisements with a hotline number. The program aims to target Atlantic, Camden, Essex, Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean counties, were the opioid crisis has had a major impact. DHS Commissioner Carole Johnson speaks on the mission of the program:
“When you are struggling with substance use disorder and are ready for treatment, we want to be ready for you. That’s why we are piloting a new approach to our addiction treatment hotline. We’ve restructured the program so that when you call for help you reach live, trained responders who have worked with New Jersey’s treatment providers and know how to connect you with help.”
