About Us

Mission Statement

The NJ Connect for Recovery Call Line was established to support two distinct groups across the state of New Jersey: those concerned with their own opiate use; and, those who are experiencing distress related to the opiate use of a friend or family member.  This service is a safe, confidential, nonjudgmental forum that New Jerseyans may call to connect, grow and transform through a unique combination of supportive counseling from Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors and Peer Specialists.


The Mental Health Association in New Jersey’s (MHANJ’s) NJ Connect for Recovery Call Line is pleased to announce expanded weekday hours to increase access to guidance for people coping with opiate addiction and their family members.
New Hours for NJ Connect for Recovery Call Line, 855-652-3737:
Weekdays, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Weekends, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Holidays, 3 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The expanded hours further NJ Connect for Recovery’s collaboration with ReachNJ, Rutgers’ Interim Managing Entity addiction treatment initiative and the Children’s System of Care, all of which are dedicated to helping those affected by New Jersey’s heroin and prescription painkiller addiction crisis. This alliance was established to assure a strong, seamless system of providing emotional support, education, access to treatment, and ongoing family and peer guidance – all so critical to addressing this issue in our state.


NJ Connect for Recovery provides:

  • Nonjudgmental support
  • Family support/education groups
  • Immediate and ongoing assistance
  • Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors
  • Peer Specialists who understand the effects of addiction on the family
  • Multilingual and TTY services available

The MHANJ’s NJ Connect for Recovery is made possible with funding from the New Jersey Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services.
