Founded in 1971, Prevention Resources, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing substance abuse within the communities we serve.
Known at its inception as the National Council on Alcohol Drug Dependence, Inc. of Hunterdon County, the organization was developed by local residents in direct response to the voices of individuals, family, and friends. The founders saw a need for a solution to substance abuse, and based mission in the realm of prevention, community education, information, and referral to services. The agency later changed its name to Hunterdon Prevention Resources.
In 1998, the agency went through a second change in name, evolving to reflect the expansion in services and changes to the geographical area served. However, this did not affect our mission. Now more than ever, Prevention Resources, Inc.is visible throughout the communities we serve. You can find us providing our citizens with top quality prevention education, direct community engagement, professional trainings, early intervention, community awareness, information/referral services, and counseling.
Prevention Resources represents Hunterdon County in the New Jersey Prevention Network, a statewide organization composed of the various New Jersey county agencies dedicated to substance abuse prevention and education.
The Building Communities of Recovery program works to mobilize resources within, and outside of, the recovery community to increase the prevalence and quality of long-term recovery support from substance abuse and addiction. These grants support the development, enhancement, expansion, and delivery of, recovery support services (RSS) as well as promotion of, and education about recovery. Programs are principally governed by people in recovery from substance abuse and addiction who reflect the community being served.
Substance abuse does not discriminate, and has ripple effects that rock the community far beyond the individuals struggling with substance use disorders. People of every age, gender, sexual orientation, race, and socioeconomic background feel the damage caused. Our dedication to preventing and healing these wounds has not waned since 1971.
