THE NEW JERSEY REENTRY CORPORATION REPORT EXAMINES SYSTEMIC OPIOID ADDICTION TREATMENT CHALLENGES


AND SETS FORTH STRUCTURAL AND CLINICAL RECOMMENDATIONS

TRENTON—On Tuesday, September 25 at 11:00 a.m., at the New Jersey State House, Room 103, the New Jersey Reentry Corporation (NJRC) will release the New Jersey Opioid Addiction Report: A Modern Plague, which relies upon national "best practices" to provide for a clinically driven addiction treatment system that enshrines a "continuum of care" premised upon successful state templates.

Statement of Dr. Douglas B. Marlowe, National Association of Drug Court Professionals:

"The damage wrought by the opioid epidemic nationally and in New Jersey is tragic and well documented, yet effective policy responses have remained largely elusive. As a senior scientific consultant for the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP), I have personally witnessed the devastating effects of opioid addiction on persons involved in the criminal justice and child welfare systems. I strongly endorse the treatment- and prevention-focused recommendations in your report, which if implemented I believe would make major contributions to public health and public safety."
