September is National Recovery Month.  Join us for a special “Live From Trenton” broadcast as we discuss the work being done by the Governor’s Council on Alcohol and Drug Addiction in NJ by putting the spotlight on the Council’s 22 Annual Summit at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick. 

We will speak with two of the principals participating in this event as we explore the important work being done to help individuals overcome addiction and educate others on the available resources for prevention. 

Our guests will include former NJ Governor James McGreevey.  He works with the women of the Integrity House Program at the Hudson County Correctional Center. McGreevey presently guides and directs the Integrity House initiative's spiritual counseling as well as works with the women upon discharge to secure mentoring; a continued commitment to principles of recovery; and, reintegration into the Hudson County community.

We will also talk with Benjamin John Chin, a keynote speaker at the event.  Now 25 years old, Chin has been in recovery since age 19. He is currently a senior at Rutgers University majoring in Public Health and Linguistics, and plans to pursue a law degree with his sights set on influencing domestic health policy in the near future. All of Ben’s involvement on campus contributed to his development as a leader making it possible for him to become a founding member of the non-profit organization Young People in Recovery, which is a grassroots advocacy organization that mobilizes the voice of young people in recovery from addiction.

The Governor’s Council on Alcohol and Drug Addiction executes three core functions:  policy and planning; public awareness and education; and, the administration of the Alliance to Prevent Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Program.
