LINDEN, N.J.Aug. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — September is National Recovery Month as well as Back to School Month and Ammon Labs (, a full-service toxicology lab headquartered in Linden, New Jersey is combining these two very important milestones and helping students in recovery. Throughout the month of August, Ammon Labs’employees have been raising funds and purchasing supplies to fill backpacks to give to each student at the three public recovery high schools in NJ.

These schools are: The Raymond J. Lesniak High School in Roselle, NJ; K.E.Y.S. Academy Recovery High School in Lincroft, NJ; and Coastal Preparatory High School in Wildwood, NJ.

The schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, September 3

There are only approximately 36 public recovery high schools in the United States, and only 3 in New Jersey. Many do not receive the proper funding or publicity that they need to continue their mission. With the growing epidemic of substance use disorders and subsequent deaths, ensuring the public is aware of this option is critical in the continuation of these programs and the recovery of these young adults.

We welcome all media outlets to join us to help celebrate these courageous students as they embark on their new school year. Learn more about Recovery High Schools and help get the word out to parents and students that there are such schools available to them to remain on the road to recovery. School officials, local municipal administrators and students will be available to interview as well as Ammon Labs executives.
