Are You Looking for Substance Abuse Treatment?
DMHAS has created a
searchable directory to assist in locating programs for alcohol and drug abuse treatment and related services in the State for adolescents and adults. The treatment directory can be searched by alphabet or name of treatment agency, by county, by municipality, by type of treatment services, type of care, special populations, type of funding and special initiatives.

You can also contact your County Drug and Alcohol Director to inquire about local treatment resources.

In addition, you can dial 1-844-276-2777 for the IME Addictions Access Center, which can provide information and referral to substance abuse treatment agencies statewide.  This free service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and information shared is confidential.

How to File a Complaint About a NJ Substance Abuse Treatment Facility

To register a complaint regarding any substance abuse treatment facility in New Jersey, you may CALL TOLL FREE, 1 (877) 712-1868, during normal business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and speak with your county's Coordinator.  After normal business hours, call the same toll free number and you may leave a message and your call will be returned by a Coordinator the next business day. 

If you wish to remain anonymous, you may.  However, it is preferable that you leave a first name and phone number so that a Coordinator will be able to contact you with any questions.  Your anonymity will be protected.  Your name will not be revealed to the facility unless you give permission to do so, and we will not leave a message on your phone unless you indicate that it is OK for someone to leave a message.
