The NJ Connect for Recovery Call Line was established to support two distinct groups across the state of New Jersey: those concerned with their own opiate use; and those who are experiencing distress related to the opiate use of a friend or family member. Because addiction affects the entire family, NJ Connect for Recovery announces its support and education groups for people coping with a loved one's opiate use disorder.
