The C.L.E.A.R. Program offers Sussex County adults and their loved ones help for an addiction problem. Simply walk into a participating police department without fear of questioning, arrest or prosecution from law enforcement. Participants are paired with a trained recovery coach that serves as a personal guide and mentor to recovery by connecting them to resources and offering on-going recovery support.

  1. Locate a participating police department.

  2. Walk in through the main doors of the department nearest you. Please bring a photo ID if possible.

  3. Tell the official at the reception window that you want to participate in the C.L.E.A.R. Program.

  4. A designated officer will bring you through the screening process which includes filling out some paperwork. If you are in possession of illegal substances and paraphernalia the officer will take them from you and destroy them appropriately.

  5. The officer will connect you to a trained Recovery Coach that will assist in developing a plan for recovery.

The Recovery Coach will help you understand your options, navigate treatment services, connect to other resources and provide support in following through. All pathways of recovery are promoted and supported and long-term follow up support is offered by the Recovery Coach. Your participation in C.L.E.A.R. is completely voluntary and free of charge.
