New Jersey Statutes, Title: 26, HEALTH AND VITAL STATISTICS

    Chapter 2G:

      Section: 26:2G-31: Public policy

           It is declared to be the public policy of this State that the prevention of drug abuse and addiction and the treatment and rehabilitation of victims thereof is a matter of grave concern to the people of the State and requires that a comprehensive program be established to provide the broadest spectrum of medical and community services possible for local treatment and counseling facilities on a Statewide basis. Further, this Statewide effort must avoid devisiveness, organizational uncertainty, unnecessary duplication of efforts and unproductive controversy and, therefore, will require coordination and supervision of local operations through strategically placed regional centers, all to be administered through the Division of Narcotic and Drug Abuse Control in the Department of Health.

L.1971, c. 128, s. 1, eff. July 1, 1971.
