Changing the Face of Addiction – August 5th 2017


 Changing the Face of Addiction

People who become addicted to alcohol and other drugs are our sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, cousins, loved ones and friends. Individuals may struggle for many years to regain control of their lives. The Center for Prevention and Counseling (The Center) is hosting a walk in memory of two young men from Sussex County who lost their struggle with addiction. The purpose of this walk is to change how addiction and individuals who struggle with substance use disorders are perceived. One hundred percent of your donation will go directly to The Center to help those in need of services to aid them in their struggle with addiction.

Changing the Face of Addiction will be held on August 5th 2017. Children, families and adults from all over New Jersey will walk in memory of George and Eric. The event will include a one and a half mile walk, speakers, refreshments, music and local resources.

Please show your commitment to help in “changing the face of addiction” by becoming a sponsor of this significant event. Join others in our community as, together, we offer hope to individuals and families in Sussex County. The sponsorship commitment form has varying levels of support for you to choose from.
