WARREN COUNTY, NJ – The organization Parent to Parent Addiction Services, Inc of Warren County dedicated its new Hope One Recovery Van today with help from Warren County Commissioner Jason J. Sarnoski, law enforcement representatives and others.
Joining Sarnoski for the dedication was former Lopatcong Mayor Doug Steinhardt, who with Sarnoski established the Warren Count Addiction Awareness Task Force; Assemblyman Erik Peterson, Warren County Prosecutor James Pfeiffer, Warren County Sheriff James McDonald, Sr., and local police departments.
The 2021 Ford Transit van was obtained with help from Jeff Smith of Smith Motors, where the dedication was held, said Debi Natale, co-director with Helen Carey of the addiction services group they established in 2014.
The Hope One Van will offer Mobile Recovery Straight to Treatment services, bringing licensed counselors and recovery coaches to locations through the county, Natale said. It will work in conjunction with P2P’s C.L.E.A.R (Community Law Enforcement Addiction Recovery) Program, she said. The Hope One van will also be available to go to town events and schools to offer education and to share materials and referrals for other Warren County services.
“We’re here to help every area in the county,” Natale said.
Updates about the Hope One van including its scheduled locations will be available on the organization’s website, www.parent2parentaddictionservices.com.
