Stop Opioid Addiction
Opioid Prevention



 The Morris County Board of Freeholders has proclaimed October as National Substance Use Prevention Month in Stigma-Free Morris County, especially encouraging young people to seek help for substance use disorders.
In making the proclamation, the county governing board is highlighting the positive efforts being made by the
Municipal Alliance Network in Morris County, which is on the front line of dealing with substance use by our young residents.

Stigma Free

Stigma Free - What Does It Mean?

The fear of stigma too often keeps people who are struggling with mental illness from seeking the help they need.  Towns across New Jersey are standing up to the shame associated with mental illness by declaring themselves "stigma-free."

The Morris County Stigma-Free Communities Initiative is a county-wide program which aims to eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness and substance use disorders.

We are dedicated to raising awareness of these illnesses by creating an environment where affected individuals are supported in their efforts to achieve wellness and recovery.

Hope One


mark your calendars for November
