Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day will take place almost exclusively in a virtual format on social media, emails, websites and through webinars. Please use the images, materials and other resources on this website to share important opioid awareness messages with your community.

The statewide single-day initiative, organized by the Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey and The Community Coalition for a Safe & Healthy Morris, in cooperation with the New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, will mobilize the prevention and treatment communities, community leaders and concerned citizens to raise awareness of the potential for dependency on prescribed pain medicine and its link to heroin abuse rates in our state.
