ELIZABETH, NJ - A plea for help from Elizabeth and Roselle- based Prevention Links, is asking for support in Trenton on Jan. 23, 10:30 a.m. at the NJ State House. Advocates are needed in support of legislation that will help the Raymond J. Lesniak Experience, Strength, Hope Recovery High School, New Jersey's only public Recovery High School (RHS), succeed.
Critical legislation regarding the Recovery High School will be introduced. Supporters are asked to go to the State House Room 103 across from the Senate Chambers to show their support.
“The Raymond J Lesniak Experience Strength and Hope Recovery High School is a place where education and recovery go hand in hand,” said Prevention Links CEO, Pamela Capaci. “We are building a system of caring support designed for adolescents where they can meet new friends and have new experiences that don’t include alcohol and drugs. Our students are given a chance to achieve academically so they can pursue their life goals. This happens because they are provided with the onsite supports needed to succeed in early recovery.
"Recovery Schools give students struggling with substance use a safe haven to get an education and stay sober,” said Senator Raymond Lesniak.
