Volunteers for Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day in New Jersey

   

Please submit any event photos to admin@drugfreenj.org and they will be featured on this page

The statewide single-day initiative, organized by the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey and The Community Coalition for a Safe & Healthy Morris, in cooperation with the New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, will mobilize the prevention and treatment communities, community leaders and concerned citizens to raise awareness of the potential for dependency on prescribed pain medicine and its link to heroin abuse rates in our state. Teams of volunteers across the state will visit physician and dental offices, as well as homes in local communities, to distribute this vital information.

Suggestions for Information Distribution

  • Having a pizzeria put the handouts on pizza boxes
  • Putting door hangers on cars in the train station
  • Hanging information on doors
  • Not physically able to go out? You can take a picture of the door hangers and share on social media with #KnockOutOpioidAbuse
  • Hand them out to people passing by
