FREEHOLD, NJ - GRASP, Grief Recovery After a Substance Passing, has recently opened a new chapter in Monmouth County, New Jersey. As a national organization, GRASP was created to help provide sources of compassion, support, and, most of all, understanding for families and individuals who have lost a loved one from a result of substance misuse.

“It is vital to offer our community the support and services that GRASP offers,” said Abby Boxman, founder of the Monmouth County GRASP Chapter. “GRASP was created for individuals to share their grief in all forms, without judgment from the stigma that follows. Having experienced this unfortunate tragedy, healthy communication before, during, and after, eases the burden.Through talking and listening to one another, we aid ourselves and others who must take this journey of survival.”

GRASP of Monmouth County will be hosting monthly meetings on the second Sunday of each month, from 1-3:30 PM at the Star and Barry Tobias Ambulatory Campus, Conference Center Room B, Centra State Medical Center, 901 West Main Street, Freehold Township, NJ 07728.
