Blue HART (Heroin Addiction Recovery & Treatment)

By Addiction Policy Forum




Ocean County Prosecutor - Blue HART (Heroin Addiction Recovery & Treatment)


Blue HART is a community-based collaboration between law enforcement, clinicians, and first responders that aims to help individuals struggling with substance use disorder before the event of an overdose. Select police stations act as intake sites and have set days when individuals struggling with SUD can come in and ask for help. Participants undergo a background check so that the program can develop a holistic view of their situation and begin tracking their case. Participants are immediately taken to a partnering clinic where they’re asses by a clinician who connects them with care. Every participant is connected with a recovery coach who is in recovery and acts as a mentor helping them navigate the process of treatment and recovery.
