About this Event

NJTV calls for poems to tell stories of addiction treatment and recovery

 

NJTV challenges members of the public to write an original poem about how addiction has affected themselves or their family. The poem could be about a person’s own experiences with addiction and recovery, how drug abuse has affected his or her family, a memorial to someone lost to an overdose or other related experience.

Those interested in submitting a poem as part of the project may log on to njdrugcrisis.org/poems for more information or contact NJTV’s Community Engagement Liaison Selma Betancourt, MS.  Deadline is December 31, 2016. Submissions will be reviewed and posted on the initiative’s website, njdrugcrisis.org, and potentially used on other platforms and may be incorporated into the next Healthy NJ event this December.

NJTV’s year-long Healthy NJ: New Jersey’s Drug Addiction Crisis community engagement initiative utilizes the network’s broadcast and online resources to spotlight what New Jersey is doing to tackle heroin, opioid and other drug use and to reduce the number of overdose deaths. The project covers all aspects of addiction, prevention, treatment and recovery, and shares stories of struggle and success to educate and inform the community.
