Pathways to Recovery
If you’ve been impacted by opioids, it can be difficult to reenter the workforce or change careers. The NJDOL provides employment assistance to those with a personal history of opioid use or who have a friend of family member with a history of opioid use, so they can reenter the workforce.
The Pathways to Recovery program provides services to individuals whose workforce conditions have been impacted by the opioid epidemic, including:
- Training Services
- Career Services
- Supportive Services
The program’s goal is to provide participants with skills and training to support their transition into employment.
Pathways to Recovery offers services to the following counties: Atlantic, Camden, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, and Union.
The Pathways to Recovery program is financed 100% with WIOA National Dislocated Worker NEG federal funding totaling $3,000,000.
To be eligible, individuals must be able to answer yes to the following question: Do you, a friend, or any member of your family have a history of opioid use?
Participants must be dislocated workers temporarily or permanently unemployed or underemployed because of opioids.
Participants must live in one of the following counties: Atlantic, Camden, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, or Union
