Defeating the opiate epidemic in Ocean County, and across America, requires action by every capable, responsible individual possible. Monday at Ocean County College, receive the equipment to spread the message in your community.

"Community Action Forum: No More Deaths"  begins at 10 AM and runs until 12 Noon on the Toms River campus, hosted by Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato. Attendees in the Gateway Building will receive "tool kits" of instructional material.
