Who operates the program?

The program was created by the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office and is operated in conjunction with the police departments of Evesham Township, Pemberton Township, Mount Holly and the City of Burlington, along with Oaks Integrated Care, Solstice Counseling and Wellness Center, Hand ‘n’ Heart and Maryville Addiction Treatment Center.

Is anyone eligible?

Yes, anyone who asks for assistance will be helped, regardless of residency.

What if I don’t have insurance?

What if I have drugs I want to turn in?

Those who come in for help can bring drugs and drug paraphernalia to surrender to police without being charged with possession.
