NEW RESOURCE!  “Parent Check NJ”

The NJ Social Marketing Collaborative was developed by the New Jersey Prevention Network (NJPN), the Partnership for a Drug Free New Jersey (PDFNJ) and the New Jersey AD Club in order to positively impact 18 to 25 year olds and their parents. Bringing together the expertise of these three organizations and adding the full Collaborative membership establishes a strong base to develop and implement a statewide effective prevention program. http://www.parentchecknj.com
