Grants to New Jersey nonprofit and for-profit entities in eligible locations for substance abuse treatment services for individuals with limited financial resources. Funding is intended to support prevention, education, treatment, detox services, recovery, and recovery supports. Target populations include individuals with substance use disorders or at risk of substance misuse, including youth, adults, seniors, men, women, criminal offenders, individuals with disabilities, and individuals with co-occurring disorders. Activities should benefit residents of Morris County.

The use of Chapter 51 funds is strictly limited to meet the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug treatment needs of those who lack the financial means to access treatment due to lack of insurance or the ability to self-pay. The County of Morris is committed to supporting agencies that offer client-centered, trauma-informed, recovery-oriented care in a stigma-free environment.

Special Consideration will be given to the following service areas:

  1. Recovery Support Services – Outreach & case management, relapse prevention, life skills, peer-to-peer services, employment and job training services, etc.
    • Peer Recovery Specialist – Credentialed individuals available to respond after Narcan deployment in the hospital emergency room to provide ongoing support and linkage.
    • Recovery Support Services available to individuals who are awaiting admission to treatment programs. Engaging individuals as a bridge to treatment services.
  2. Prevention/Early Intervention – Prevention and Early Intervention programs must be evidence-based. Programs that address the stigma associated with mental illness and substance use, increase awareness and foster recovery. Mental Health First Aid programs for youth, adults and other special populations.
  3. Transportation - directly provided or linked.
  4. Jail Re-entry Services – including medication-assisted treatment, outpatient counseling, and case management services.
  5. Outreach and case management, including wraparound services, to engage individuals with co-occurring disorders and multiple service needs.
