If you have ever wondered if a young person is using alcohol or illegal drugs, this class will provide you with the tools necessary to address possible substance abuse with your young person living at home. 

 

Substance abuse affects everyone.  Are you prepared for this when it strikes your child, your family or a friend's family? The WHRMA mission is to reduce alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse in Warren, Watchung, Green Brook and Long Hill Townships. They  believe that you can help make a difference in our children's and teens lives by reducing their abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs.

 

The Watchung Hills Regional Municipal Alliance is a community partnership of volunteers which serve the Warren Township, Watchung Borough, Green Brook and Long Hill Townships and is part of the NJ Governor's Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. The WHRMA identifies community needs and develops prevention programs to address those areas.

   

Research has shown that community coalitions such as the Watchung Hills Regional Municipal Alliance (WHRMA) and Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drugs (ATOD) abuse prevention programs, when presented on a local-level, are an effective approach to preventing substance abuse, under-age drinking, juvenile delinquency, teen pregnancy and more. 

 

WHRMA provides funding for prevention programs in the elementary, middle and high schools, to adults and senior citizens, community intervention programs, and support to our local police & PTO's.
