 The Hart Program
Prosecutor Grewal  has recently announced a new initiative called the HART program (Heroin Addiction Recovery Team), which is in partnership with CarePlus, the Lyndhurst, Paramus, and Mahwah Police Departments. This is a walk-in program for those seeking recovery from substance abuse, and those individuals will be connected to comprehensive care. Assessments are provided by CarePlus clinicians with specialties in mental health and substance abuse counseling and they will work to coordinate needed care with a provider,  which accepts that individual’s benefit coverage or has funding for those without insurance. Individuals may turn in drug paraphernalia without arrest, however individuals with warrants for their arrest will have to address those issues before being connected to services. The walk-in hours are Wednesday’s from 9a-5p. No appointment necessary, and you do not have to be a Bergen County resident to utilize this service. Transportation may be provided to treatment sites.
