I am the Founder & CEO of P.I.C.K. Awareness, Parent's In Connection for Kids Inc, a 501c3 Not-For- Profit Corporation. We are dedicated to reducing heroin overdose and substance use disorders. I also serve as a Special State Officer on the N.J. Governor's Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. We are dedicated to reducing heroin overdose and substance use disorders. Prior to my roll at P.I.C.K. Awareness, I was the Director of Community Relations at RWJ Barnabas Health Institute for Prevention and Recovery.
Having worked in this field for many years, I always felt and still do that Prevention Efforts are key to Preventing Substance Use Disorder, let's Face it, If it Doesn't Start, You Don't Have to Stop it!
BUT….if it Does Start and We are in the Midst of the Worst Opiate/ Opioid Epidemic this Country has seen, how do you navigate through these uncertain, frightening times and what can you do to keep your family healthy and safe? Where do you go if you need help?
Everyone is relevant in our community. We want to break the stigma of addiction, encourage the public to reach out for help, inform them, advocate for them and offer resources to prevent the early onset of addiction.
Included are data resources for professionals, such as educational institutes, law enforcement agencies, realtors and our medical community who are writing grants, doing presentations or just educating themselves on prevention, treatment or recovery.

We are available to speak to all groups.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
