Open door recovery center
of hunterdon county



In 2016, Prevention Resources, Inc., identified a community need for greater access to support systems, information, and other resources for persons in recovery from problematic substance use. Open Door Recovery Center of Hunterdon County was opened to help meet this need and further assist individuals in cultivating sustainable long-term recovery.

Based out of Prevention Resources’ Center, a historic home in Flemington, NJ, all attendees have access to any of the social services and resources available through all the agency’s divisions.

All of the services, activities, and events provided ensure confidentiality and are free of cost.

Peer Recovery Coaching

Peer Recovery Specialists walk side by side with individuals seeking support in their recovery from substance use disorders. They help people create their own recovery plans and develop their own recovery pathways.

  • Identify personal strengths that can help you reach and maintain your recovery goals.
  • Develop positive coping skills that will help you better manage your challenges.
  • Build peer relationships and create stronger natural support networks.
  • Enhance social skills to allow you to live, work and participate more fully in your community.
  • Build confidence and self‐advocacy skills.
  • Navigate community services and resources such as, social services, education and employment assistance, health services, housing, etc.
  • Offer emotional and social support, and set back prevention.

If you feel like you or a loved one is in need of a peer recovery coach, we would love to hear from you.

Wellness Planning

Wellness planning is designed to help individuals gain a better understanding of where they are in their recovery and what further support they may need.  Completing a wellness plan provides the opportunity to:

  • Explore SAMHSA’s 8 dimensions of wellness and learn about how each shows up in your recovery.
  • Sit down with a member of our team and discuss current challenges and successes in your recovery.
  •  Receive linkages to community services and peer support programs based on your individual needs.
