The Freeholder Board and the Addiction Awareness Task Force have created a website aimed at assisting the public with the fight against opiate addiction.
The website, addictions.camdencounty.com, helps to educate residents on the resources available to prevent and treat addiction. Additionally, the site provides a downloadable addiction prevention toolkit for community partners such as schools and civic organizations to utilize in their own prevention programs.
“This is a community problem, and as a task force we want to support the efforts of groups already doing great work in preventing drug abuse among our residents,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, who spearheaded efforts in forming the task force last May. “The Addiction Awareness Tool Kit was the next step in our awareness and prevention efforts.”
