Monmouth County HOPE 1 Highlights (2022-2023)
The Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office Hope One Mobile Unit and our dedicated recovery specialist visits communities to assist in combatting the opioid epidemic. Since 2019, Hope One has been deployed to hundreds of events and locations to help educate residents on addiction services and provide resources to those with substance use disorder. Useful items are distributed such as hygiene products in addition to vouchers for free 30-day treatments. Having a routine day and time of the month, reinforces our dedicated support and lets residents know they can count on us being there.
A new outreach program was initiated in 2022 partnering with Hotels/Motels where overdoses were high or had a higher population with substance abuse. An informative poster provided by the Sheriff’s office, both in English and Spanish were distributed to targeted hotel/motels along with training services in the application of Narcan.
