This video follows the creation of the Essex County 28-day detox unit. The unit is filling a large treatment void in the community. In the first 90 days, 132 people have been admitted to the facility. The vast majority successfully completed the 28 days and went on to residential treatment or intensive outpatient programs.
Essex Sheriff Frank Cousins and his office have been partners with P.A.A.R.I. since day one.
