We Need Your Input on Mental Health and Addiction Services

Have you ever used any Morris County services for mental health, drug or alcohol addiction treatment and recovery? We need your input!

Every four years, each county in NJ prepares a County Comprehensive Plan (CCP) for Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Support Services. The purpose of the CCP is to identify needs and gaps within the service system in order to allocate resources and develop service priorities and programs to address those needs.

Fill out our survey to let us know where gaps in treatment are. The results of the survey will be compiled and summarized by county staff in the development of the CCP.
