CarePlus Gets $1M To Expand Opioid Abuse Programs

PARAMUS, NJ – The state’s Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services awarded more than $1 million in grant funding to Care Plus Inc. to expand its recovery support services to those battling opioid addiction in northern New Jersey.

The money will allow for Paramus-based CarePlus to offer a bigger range of services, including, peer recovery support and case management, to recovering individuals in Passaic, Morris and Warren counties through the state’s Support Team for Addiction Recovery (STAR) program.

Since 2017, CarePlus has utilized the STAR program in Bergen County, according to a news release from the organization.
