The WorkFirst New Jersey Substance Abuse Initiative (WFNJ/SAI) was implemented in 1998 through collaboration between the Division of Family Development (DFD), Division of Addiction Services (DAS) and Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services (DMAHS). 

The SAI combines public health and managed care principles to provide substance abuse services for eligible Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) and General Assistance (GA) clients.  Consistent with the goals of WFNJ, the SAI uses an employment-directed approach to address substance abuse as a barrier to work activities. 

The SAI is operational statewide. It has two key components:  (1) a managed care model of Assessment and Case Management services, and (2) prior authorization fee-for-service treatment offered by providers in the SAI Provider Network. 

This is one of multiple DAS Fee-For-Service Network Initiatives.  If you are interested in substance abuse treatment and believe you may qualify for services through this initiative, please contact a WFNJSAI Provider.

To learn more about WFNJ, visit the DFD website.
