Gov. Christie Signs MAT and Student Recovery Housing Bills into Law

Governor Chris Christie signed into law two more bills that aim to ensure treatment for and recovery from substance use disorders.

S-2377/A-3719 (sponsored by Senators Peter Barnes and Joseph Vitale and Assemblymembers Nancy Pinkin and Raj Mukherji) requires four-year public colleges and universities to establish substance abuse recovery housing programs within four years.

S-2381/A-3723 (sponsored by Senators Ray Lesniak and Joseph Vitale and Assemblymembers Herb Conaway, Raj Mukherji, Shavonda Sumter and Angelica Jimenez) allows for the completion of a special probation drug court program with use of medication-assisted treatment (MAT).

"We remain firmly committed to confronting the stigma of drug abuse and addiction in the Garden State. These measures are another bold step to help people reclaim their lives," Gov. Christie was quoted in a press release issued by his office.
