HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Helping New Jersey’s families through substance use and recovery, requires a community-wide approach. We encourage community organizations and services to connect with our team to find out the best way to share free and accessible resources with New Jersey healthcare clinicians and their patients. If you would like to learn more about this important work, please join our email list to find out about future events and opportunities to get involved!
NJ SBIRT will host three regional dinners in the northern, central, and southern regions of the state to educate attendees about the SBIRT model and recruit pediatric clinicians in primary and specialty care and community-based clinicians to join the NJ SBIRT Project ECHO in the fall. Community partners from each region will be invited to encourage networking and sharing of resources to ensure connection to resources.
NJ SBIRT will host two virtual informational webinars in 2024 to educate participants about the SBIRT model and recruit pediatric clinicians in primary and specialty care and community-based clinicians to join the NJ SBIRT Project ECHO in the fall.
