EAST BRUNSWICK– After reviewing several nominations, NCADD of Middlesex County, Inc. has decided to celebrate the 2013 National Recovery Month by dedicating its “Tree of Hope” to the New Brunswick Counseling Center (NBCC) in New Brunswick.
The “Tree of Hope” is awarded annually to an organization that promotes recovery from addiction. A ceremony to recognize NBCC will be held Sept. 26 at the organization’s facility located at 320 Suydam Street in New Brunswick.
“We chose the New Brunswick Counseling Center as our 2013 Tree of Hope recipient because of their impact on the community they serve, every day,” said NCADD CEO and Executive Director Steven G. Liga. “Particularly during this period of increasing heroin and prescription drug overdoses, services such as those provided by the New Brunswick Counseling Center are vital to the families of Central Jersey.”
NBCC also offers treatment for co-occurring disorders, IOP groups for Drug Court, and the general population that requires this service, specialized Women’s Services for pregnant women, relapse prevention groups, treatment for incarcerated pregnant women, and IDRC groups and individual counseling.
As part of the candlelight dedication ceremony, individually personalized ornaments are hung on the tree to commemorate the recovery of a loved one, in the hope of recovery for a friend or family member, or to memorialize someone who did not experience recovery. Ornaments may also remain anonymous. A $5 donation per ornament helps defray the costs associated with the event.
