The Toms River Township Municipal Alliance coordinates substance abuse prevention programs, activities, and events for community members in all age categories throughout the year. The Alliance often works in conjunction with the Toms River District Schools, the Township’s Department of Youth Services and Senior Center, as well as other agencies and organizations for the same purpose. The Alliance networks with numerous social service, health care, government, non-profit, and private agencies in its mission. Staff members provide information and referrals on substance abuse and related issues as they pertain to the age-specific and/or socio-economic needs of community members. Free age-appropriate literature addressing substance abuse issues is available at the Alliance office. Further, all programs, activities, and events directly sponsored by the Alliance are presented free-of-charge to participants.
For more information, for a referral or request, or to become a volunteer, please call Coordinator Helen McGovern at (732) 341-1000, ext. 8490. Please check the Announcements and Events sections of this site and our answering machine for updates on Alliance events and programs.
