SEABROOK, N.J., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Seabrook House has teamed up with The Drug Enforcement Administration-New Jersey Division, The New York/New Jersey High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area and treatment facilities New Hope Foundation and Integrity House, on the project "HOPE: Chronicles of Drug Addiction and Recovery."
Project HOPE aims to create awareness for substance use disorders and encourages those suffering and their family members to get help. It spreads the message through written art that recovery is possible. Recovering addicts in New Jersey were asked to submit a short story or poem to Project HOPE, which will be compiled into a book and featured at the HOPE event. Also at the event, individuals will share their stories of hope and recovery with those in attendance.
The HOPE event is scheduled to take place on June 7, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. It will be held at The Kelsey Theater of Mercer County Community College in West Windsor, New Jersey. The event is open to the public. Those interested in attending can RSVP to Jessica Gonzalez at email@example.com or (973) 776-5168.
The message of The Project HOPE aligns very closely with the Seabrook House vision to make recovery possible for every family who needs it. "Seabrook House treatment programs encourage addicted patients and their families each day to move into life in recovery, so of course we were committed to be a part of this dynamic celebration in New Jersey," states Suzanne Mulrain, Seabrook House Director of Healthcare Collaboratives. "Collaborating to promote the hope of freedom found in recovery has been a very positive experience for all involved, especially the individuals who submitted their personal stories of hope. Seabrook House celebrates recovery through frequent, uplifting alumni gatherings. Addiction is an isolating disease but recovery is a joyful reality."
