Crawford House Director to Speak Woman’s Club on Treatment Programs for Addictions Feb. 4th

Posted on January 28, 2016

The number of New Jerseyans addicted to drugs, particularly heroin, has risen dramatically in the last few years. A recent Star Ledger report notes that if all the people addicted to heroin in New Jersey lived in the same town, it would be the fourth largest town in New Jersey with a population of at least 128,000.

An organization that is successfully treating addicted New Jerseyans is Daytop NJ at Crawford House. Crawford House is a private, not-for-profit agency which provides transitional housing and an intensive, comprehensive six- month treatment program to homeless, indigent women recovering from drugs and/or alcohol addiction. Linda Leyhane, Managing Director of Crawford House, will speak to the Montgomery Woman’s Club on February 4, 2016 at 7 pm at the Otto Kaufman Center on 356 Skillman Road in Skillman, NJ. The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Questions?
