One of them was STORI (State Targeted Opioid Response Initiative), which aims to address the opioid crisis. This initiative seeks to increase the availability and ease of access to substance abuse treatment, lower the number of untreated cases, and decrease the number of deaths by drug overdose. STORI utilizes recovery activities designed to prevent and treat substance abuse disorders.

People who struggle with substance abuse can also seek help at the New Jersey Department of Human Services. WNFJ offers an assessment and will pay for the treatment and provide support while you are receiving the treatment.
