Packanack Community Church to Sponsor Community Forum on Addiction

            Addiction is the epidemic that's hiding in full sight, across the nation, and increasingly among those residing within our suburban communities at large.

            In his January State of the State address, Governor Christie noted, “Nearly 16 hundred people lost their lives to drugs in New Jersey in 2015.” He added, “That’s more than four times the number of murders and three times the number killed in car accidents throughout the state.”
