MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Hope One Mobile Recovery Vehicle celebrated its first anniversary on Wednesday.  Sheriff Gannon, who conceived the notion of Hope One and brought it to fruition one year ago led the ceremony and said that "People are sick and tired of being sick and tired."  Hope One is a mobile recovery access vehicle that offers critical support for persons struggling with addiction, with the goals of preventing drug overdoses and deaths.

The rain didin't keep the large crowd away.  In addition to the Sheriff, several Freeholders were in attendance as the County board helped move this initiative from concept to reality.   Also in attendance was newly elected Chester Councilman Mike Inganamort who said, "I am proud to be at the one-year anniversary of Hope One, the mobile outreach element of Morris County’s plan to combat the opioid epidemic. Chester Township is the latest Morris County municipality to join the Stigma Free Initiative. Congratulations and thanks to Sheriff James Gannon and the Board of Freeholders for spearheading this important work."

Also in attendance was candidate for Mendham Township Committee, Stan Gorski.  He remarked, "I can't believe this has been a year already.  What important great work Sheriff Gannon is leading. He is saving lives."

The Truth About My Reading
