How Have You Been Affected by the Opioid Epidemic? Tell PDFNJ Your Story

The opioid epidemic has affected people of all backgrounds from every community in New Jersey. No one is immune.

However, the stigma of addiction remains a barrier in addressing the opioid crisis.

It is important for people affected by the opioid crisis to share their stories, as a means of breaking down the stigma of addiction and giving this issue the attention it requires.

Whether you have struggled with opioid addiction or you know a family member or friend who has experienced it, we want to hear your story and share it with New Jersey residents during the Knock Out Opioid Abuse Town Hall Series being held in all 21 New Jersey counties in 2019 and 2020.

The Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey will be holding a photo shoot from 3-7 p.m. Monday, February 11 at Hope Sheds Light, 253 Chestnut St., Toms River, NJ 08753. PDFNJ will use these photos and stories as part of the town hall series to put a face to the opioid epidemic and to help to break down the stigma of addiction.   

If you are interested in participating or have any questions, email Matt Birchenough at Help break the stigma to help Knock Out Opioid Abuse.
