Monmouth County Stakeholder Meeting - Trends in Substance Use

I am writing to inform you that as Deputy Director of the Division of Behavioral Health, I am starting the process of collecting information for the County Comprehensive Plan or “CCP”. The CCP is required by state legislation and its purpose is to utilize information collected through a needs assessment process to develop a plan with priorities for our state addiction grant funds. The cycle happens every four years.

As key Stakeholders in the Monmouth County community, I would like to set up a virtual Stakeholder meeting to host a discussion around the trends you are seeing with substance use in the Monmouth County communities. The goal is to explore and discuss the needs of this population, barriers encountered, and gaps of services in relation to four specific domains: Prevention, Early Intervention, Treatment, and Recovery Supports.

Please feel free to loop in anyone you believe would be vital to this conversation; providers, consumers, family members, and community residents are all welcome.

The meeting will take place virtually through Zoom on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 from 9:30am-12pm.  There will be a brief presentation on the CCP process and goal of the meeting, followed by four separate break out rooms. Each break out room will correspond with one of the four domains (Prevention, Early Intervention, Treatment, and Recovery Supports). Everyone will attend the information portion of the general meeting and then be given the choice to join whichever breakout session they prefer to participate in. More details and explanation will be provided during the general meeting.

Your voice and experience is vital in this planning process and I encourage everyone who can to join and participate in this discussion. I appreciate the time and collaboration that everyone who participates will be putting in and am grateful for your consideration.

If anyone has questions or concerns about the process, please let me know. There will be another email regarding a community survey to follow. The Zoom meeting information will be included below:
