BRIDGETON, N.J. — You may have seen Recovery on Wheels’ signature bus rolling around Bridgeton or stopped at certain locations around the city.
Recovery on Wheels hopes to support community members who may struggle with addiction by providing resources to them. The bus gives community members access to peer recovery coaches and connection clinics, opioid reversal education, hepatitis A vaccinations, and general health screenings, among other services.
Carin Hendrix and Delia Burgos, two certified peer recovery specialists who work on the bus, hope to create a stigma-free, judgement-free environment for those who need help.
