Municipal Drug Alliance

The Municipal Drug Alliance Committee works very closely with the Township Committee, Board of Education, Police Department, school administration and staff, parent groups and many other civic organizations in town in an effort to prevent substance abuse and to provide information to all residents regarding alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. The Alliance consists of six volunteers and one member from the Township Committee. Their meetings take place at 7:30pm on the second Wednesday of each month at Watchung Hills Regional High School.

Some of the programs sponsored or supported by the Municipal Drug Alliance Committee are:

  • START – Somerset County’s Steps To Action Recovery Treatment
  • Free Narcan Training & Community-Based Opioid Treatment
  • Somerset County Prescription Drop Boxes
  • Narcotics Anonymous
  • NJ Addiction Services Hotline – 1-844-276-2777
  • NJ Connect for Recovery – 855-652-3737
