Our Mission

Our goal is simply to help prevent addiction and to try to save the lives of those people who are bravely fighting this insidious disease. We recognize that addiction is not only at an epidemic proportion here in New Jersey but also throughout the United States.

The Second Chance Addiction and Recovery Foundation is striving to change that. By educating parents and children on the subjects of drug abuse and prevention, we believe that we can facilitate an open dialogue that will enable both prevention and recovery. Addiction is a disease and it can be treated with professional help. We can remove the stigma associated with addiction so that those affected will seek help. We know that by working together, our goal will be realized.

Hate to say " it's about time " they woke up and did something that will help those who suffer from the disease of addiction. Now let's hope they don't screw it all up trying to put it in place. Baby steps I guess. #SCARFNJ

The US Senate passed the Comprehensive Addiction & Recovery Act (CARA) today with an overwhelming 92-2 vote! It will now be passed to the President's desk to be signed into law. Recovery advocacy makes history! Your voices have helped to pass this expansive legislation. We have successfully educated our policymakers about the epidemic that is devastating our nation. We also showed them that long-term recovery is a reality for over 23 million Americans! #ThankYouSenate #RecoveryVoicesCount

Here is a little something for all those who do not truly understand the power of addiction. Those who suffer from the disease are helpless and need all the support and compassion they can get. To stand by idle or to continue to stigmatize those who suffer is not the answer. Read the last line of this poster and maybe you to can make a difference in someones life. #SCARFNJ ...

No one who suffers from the disease of addiction can help themselves recover. It takes not only others who have been through the journey but also people who have compassion and understand the disease. One is a start but addicts need a support system to continue down the path of recovery.#SCARFNJ ... See MoreSee Less

I often witness or hear of relapse from people I have helped deal with the disease of addiction. It is bad enough when you think you have helped to fix the problem and then it comes back home to roost again and makes you think if you just did not do enough. Although we know that basic rehabilitation is the most important part of recovery and a path to sobriety, what do we do for aftercare. I would be interested in knowing of any outlets I can point people to with regards to how to continue to stay sober once the new journey begins. It is not an easy path to stay on, so how do we as helpers and advisors keep those we have helped on the right path. Please let me know if anyone has any options. #SCARFNJ ... See MoreSee Less
