FLORHAM PARK — With the December 3 launch of its website, the NJ Coalition 4 Education and Positive Choices scaled new heights in its ongoing mission to “Educate, Engage, and Empower” state residents on how to promote a substance-free and stigma free-lifestyle. Accepting the invitation of the New York JETS to use the team’s Florham Park training facility for the online resource’s public debut, the Coalition members gathered to announce and celebrate the “Go Live” of the new site.
“We couldn’t be more excited about this launch,” stated Hanover Township Committeeman Thomas “Ace” Gallagher, the founder of the organization whose original grass roots grew well beyond Morris County to spread throughout the state. “Our coalition has worked very hard for over nine months to create what we consider to be a comprehensive source of on-line statistics, cutting edge information on emerging trends in substance abuse, and links to agencies and organizations that can help families struggling with a loved one caught up in addiction.”
Gallagher congratulated all of the Coalition members for their part in creating the website. He noted the exceptional efforts of Hanover Township Police Chief Mark Roddy and Morris Township Police Lieutenant Heather Glogolich “as instrumental” in developing the content that makes the website such a powerhouse of digital information.
“It can be a real struggle for parents to know where to access information quickly and accurately, and then to actually get help,” stated Glogolich. “The beauty of the Coalition is its ability to draw from the experience and wisdom of many individuals from various backgrounds. Their facts, data, and links to pertinent sites available on this website for access and help to anyone who needs it, reflect the teamwork of this dynamic group.”
Florham Park Mayor Mark Taylor and Gallagher thanked the JETS on behalf of the Coalition for hosting the meeting to launch the website.
The Coalition invites and encourages the public to visit the new website by clicking here and to refer family, friends, and community organizations to this hub of information and help. As the latest achievement in the Coalition’s work to educate all New Jersey residents on promoting substance-free and stigma free lifestyles through positive choices, the website complements the programs and widespread social media outreach the Coalition has undertaken to achieve its goals.
The NJ Coalition for Education and Positive Choices is a non-profit, state award-winning group of educators, law enforcement, municipal and school officials, and community-minded volunteers from Morris and neighboring NJ counties dedicated to combating substance abuse in all its forms through education and guidance in making positive choices for healthy lifestyles.
