EATONTOWN, NJ, April 19, 2021 / — Advanced Health and Education, a leading treatment center for substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders in New Jersey, is proud to have participated in “Wear Purple Day in Monmouth County,” an initiative by the Monmouth County Division of Behavioral Health to recognize the importance of alcohol awareness throughout the community.
Staff at Advanced Health and Education participated in the initiative on April 16 by wearing purple at the facility, located at 3 Corbett Way in Eatontown.
According to the New Jersey Substance Abuse Monitoring System (NJ-SAMS), alcohol use was already a significant factor for people who sought treatment for substance use disorders, with 31% of New Jersey residents naming it as their primary drug in 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic has increased drug and alcohol use even further, giving new significance to this year’s Alcohol Awareness Month.
“Initiatives like Wear Purple Day in Monmouth County let those who are struggling know they are not alone. Raising awareness for alcohol use also helps friends and family to become more attuned to signs that a loved one may need help,” said Arel Meister-Aldama, CEO of Sprout Health Group, the parent company of Advanced Health and Education. “We’re grateful to be part of a county that encourages community support.”
Monmouth County Municipal Alliance Coordinator William Horbatt mentioned the importance of alcohol awareness during COVID-19 in a community press release:
“The difficulties that individuals with alcoholism and their loved ones endure every day have become even greater as this pandemic continues,” he wrote. “Wear Purple Day is a small way for us to acknowledge their struggle and show our support.”
Alcohol awareness and education is a year-round effort for the team at Advanced Health and Education, which offers individualized addiction treatment for overuse of alcohol, or other substances, in a Partial(PH) or Intensive Outpatient Program(IOP) setting. The center has safely remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to serve those who need assistance with drug use, alcohol use, and co-occurring mental health disorders.
