At a ceremony in Morristown Monday, August 3rd, The Morris County Sheriff’s Office announced the unveiling a new, custom-designed Hope One mobile outreach vehicle. The Hope One initiative provides critical services to people with substance use and mental health disorders. With the new vehicle, Hope One partners can more easily reach at-risk populations to provide free Narcan training and kits, access to services, and even transportation to detox and rehab facilities. In addition, CARES Certified Peer Recovery Specialists use their lived experience with the disease of addiction and their training to provide life changing support delivered with kindness and compassion to the Morris County community.
Prevention is Key Associate Director (and Hope One partner) Melody Runyon was on hand for the ceremony. She applauded the significance of the state funding and the work of the Hope One teams saying, “Today is another landmark day for the Morris County Sheriff’s Hope One Project. Prevention Is Key/CARES is happy for the crew to have this new state of the art vehicle from which they can provide assistance to those who are in need whether it be related to mental health or the disease of addiction.”
