24/7 PEER HOTLINE 1-855-825-3275
In an effort to combat the substance use crisis and reduce overdose deaths, the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, in collaboration with Prevention Links and other community partners, offer Union County Helping Hands 365 free of charge to the community. UCHH 365 is based on “Operation Helping Hand” which is a model where law enforcement officers and emergency service personnel play an active role in connecting individuals suffering from opioid addiction with vital treatment, recovery and/or support services.
