Trenton Health Team and our partner organizations are launching a communications campaign to provide information about substance use disorder and harm reduction approaches located in Mercer County. We highlight where to find tools such as the use of naloxone, needle exchange programs, and fentanyl test strips as well as specific information on different treatment options such as medication-assisted treatment (MAT). The goal of the campaign is to destigmatize substance use disorder by highlighting different community engagement efforts initiated by the Mercer County Department of Human Services and our partner organizations.
