WESTAMPTON, NJ—The new Burlington County Recovery Center will be holding a meet and greet for individuals to meet with staff on Saturday, October 24, from 12pm to 3pm.
The County announced the opening of the Recovery Center in late September, with the goal to better help residents obtain treatment and other critical mental health and community support to assist them through recovery.
Located at the Burlington County Human Services Building in Westampton, the Recovery Center will serve as a so-called “one-stop” location where individuals can obtain peer support and information about treatment programs, recovery support services and community resources.
The Center will also serve as a location for other wellness activities and classes on subjects like nutrition, anger management, relaxation and meditation and resume writing, and it will provide space for groups like Narcotics and Alcoholics Anonymous to meet and also for recovering residents to find information about sober living and housing assistance and social programs that can assist them.
Those attending the meet and greet on Saturday will be able to take part in outdoor festivities, as well as meet representatives of Prevention Is Key, a North Jersey-based nonprofit that is partnering with the County to staff the Center, as well as Burlington County Human Services staff.
Pre-registration is required, and those attending will receive a time slot when they register.
To register, e-mail Casarah Morales at email@example.com.
The Burlington County Recovery Center is located at 795 Woodlane Road in Westampton.
