Passaic County Hope One

Passaic County Hope One is a Mobile Recovery Unit intended to reduce substance use disorder and help individuals with mental illness access appropriate treatment and resources, and support individuals on their path to recovery. It is staffed with a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist, a Mental Health Professional trained as a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist and a plain clothed Sheriff’s Officer. Services are provided two days a week at various, pre-determined locations, throughout Passaic County to ensure that those in need have access to resources.

Services offered include:

  • Substance use disorder support
  • Mental illness support for individuals, families, friends and loved ones
  • Linkage to services and resources, including housing; social services (i.e., food cards, identification)
  • Navigation to treatment for substance use disorder (including medication treatment) and mental illness
  • Distribution of harm reduction kits; homeless outreach care packs
  • Training and distribution of Naloxone rescue kits for eligible individuals
  • And hope, one conversation at a time

Passaic County Hope One meets people where they are. We go into the community armed with compassion and kindness to assist people in need. We offer a safe space for those who are using substances to find recovery through treatment, peer support and harm reduction services. We offer dignity kits for our community members who do not have housing, which include basic clothing and toiletries. We provide support to family members and loved ones of those actively using and seeking recovery, through family peers and C.R.A.F.T. (Community Reinforcement and Family Training) meetings and individual sessions.  We offer youth mentorship for youth impacted by substance use. We connect people to mental health services and support. We offer Narcan Rescue Training, including a Narcan Rescue Kit, to teach individuals how to recognize and properly respond to an opioid overdose including how to properly administer Narcan to reverse the overdose. We offer in person and online recovery support services for individuals and their loved ones.

CARES has a 24/7 peer support line, staffed by a Certified Peer Recovery Specialist. Call 973-625-1143.
