ANDOVER TOWNSHIP, NJ – The Center in Newton has convened a countywide conference featuring National Institute of Health scientist, Dr. Aaron White, Sussex County Prosecutor Francis Koch, NJ State Police Trooper, Sgt. Adam Polhemus and director of the nationally acclaimed film, The Anonymous People, in long term recovery himself, Mr. Greg Williams. Wherever you work, whatever you do, whoever you are- alcohol and other drugs may have affected your life, work, family or friends in one way or another. The first and most important step to understanding, supporting or improving any situation is obtaining excellent education around the issue.
For one day, on November 14 from 8:30am to 3pm at Perona Farms in Andover, you have the incredible opportunity to hear from renowned experts on what you specifically need to know to best assist family members, clients, yourself, patients, your friend or anyone interested in the most current information about addiction and recovery.
Dr. Aaron White explains the adolescent and young adult brain in real life terms that will resound immeasurably with parents, doctors, other adults and even youth. Placing the statewide epidemic into perspective, Trooper Adam Polhemus of the NJ State Police will present timely information about what law enforcement is doing to reduce the incidences of substance use disorders, illegal drug diversion and opiate overdoses. Sussex County Prosecutor Francis Koch will provide invaluable insight regarding the illegal drug issues within our county’s borders and the local law enforcement response. Greg Williams’ film, The Anonymous People, has featured hundreds of screenings throughout the world about the over 23 million people living in long term recovery from alcohol and other drugs and how advocacy is changing the way many have thought about this timely subject.
Bring a co-worker, friend or associate for an afternoon where you’ll leave inspired, renewed and empowered to help yourself and others.
