Hunterdon County Prevention Hub

For youth and families to thrive in a safe and healthy environment, communities must address the numerous risk factors that lead to the early use of alcohol and other drugs, often the first step on a path to addiction. The statewide system of Prevention Hubs provides evidence-based prevention education, interventions, strategies, and programs to support all sectors of our community, including youth, parents, schools, law enforcement, faith-based organizations, etc. 

The Prevention Hub of Hunterdon County is hosted by Prevention Resources, Inc. and connects residents and professionals with prevention resources and services, building resilience in our local communities.

The Hunterdon County Prevention Warm Line

The Hunterdon County Prevention Warm Line is a clear connection point to access both evidence-based prevention programs for youth and families, as well as information and referral for those in need of assistance with navigating local and state family support services being offered by the Prevention Hub and beyond.

Trained staff are available on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to connect callers to local and state-level resources and other supportive services.

To speak with a resource helpline staff member call 908-782-3909.

This resource helpline is not a hotline. If you are experiencing an emergency please call 911.

Changing Systems to Promote Youth Wellness

The Prevention Hub promotes the importance of systemic changes that build community resiliency and support youth wellness. Policy updates and new practices, such as implementing universal youth screening, creating policies that ensure a supportive response to youth at risk, and creating environments that support youth wellness, are key to reducing youth substance use. The Prevention Hub agencies around the state provide technical assistance and resources to schools and municipalities that guide public health policy updates to impact the environmental systems experienced by all community members.
