Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden launched a forum to prevent opiate abuse with students from area colleges and high schools yesterday, the Student Ambassadors For Heroin Use Prevention. The first program of its kind in the state of New Jersey, the ongoing program will bridge students and leaders of various agencies together, to address opiate addiction.
“Law enforcement, educational and behavioral healthcare professionals can’t combat this problem alone,” said Sheriff Shaun Golden. “That’s why it’s of the utmost importance that our adolescents and young adults, along with the professionals, work together to provide new and innovative approaches, strategies and solutions. Through this initiative we hope to inhibit the wave of opiate use, addiction and related deaths.”admin | Filed under: Heroin, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Sheriff's Office, Shaun Golden | Tags: Heroin Epidemic, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Sheriff's Office, Shaun Golden, Sheriff Shaun Golden, Student Ambassadors For Heroin Use Prevention. | Comments Off on Sheriff’s Office Enlists Students In Heroin Epidemic Fight
