About The Event

Our “HOPE ONE” initiative.

The “HOPE ONE” mobile response unit will offer critical support for persons struggling with addiction. The Atlantic County Sheriff’s Community Services Unit will operate the mobile unit with our partners. The “HOPE ONE” vehicle will travel to locations throughout Atlantic County providing services to persons in need. A Sheriff’s officer, licensed clinician, and a certified peer recovery specialist – who understand the needs of those suffering with addiction and who can triage individuals in crisis, will staff the vehicle.

In addition, Narcan kits and training will be provided to family members and friends of those suffering with an opioid addiction. The specialists staffing the van will also maintain communications with treatment centers, so they can track available beds, in real time, in the event they encounter an individual who is in immediate need of treatment. Our goal is to provide direct assistance to people regardless of their socioeconomic status or condition.

The intent of the “HOPE ONE” mobile unit is to remove barriers for people in need of services and eliminate the stigma associated with seeking help. The mobile unit will be a caring, non-judgmental environment for any resident of Atlantic County seeking safety and treatment guidance and support.

Sheriff Eric Scheffler
