Merger Forum on Addiction and Mental Health Services
Release Date: May 27, 2011

Sussex County Department of Human Services to Host Merger Forum on Addiction and Mental Health Services

[Newton, NJ] The State of New Jersey has merged the Division of Addiction Services (DAS) and Division of Mental Health Services (DMHS). The new Division is called the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS). Instead of having a fragmented approach to care, the merger brings advantages to the state such as having a combined system maximizing resources, working on an interactive, inter-related system of care for substance abuse and mental health and opportunities for expanded programs and treatment.

The Sussex County Department of Human Services is hosting a forum regarding this state merger. The forum will be held on Monday, June 6, 2011, at Project Self-Sufficiency, 127 Mill Street, Building 3, Newton, NJ, 07860, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The forum will be facilitated by Vicki Fresolone, LCSW, LCADC, Assistant to Kevin Martone, Deputy Commissioner of the NJ Department of Human Services.

Previously similar forums were held with consumers and families. This forum is a great opportunity for community providers to provide ideas about maximizing program outcomes to ensure integrated and comprehensive care, as well as improving access and building on the strength of the merged Divisions.

If you are interested in attending the forum, please contact Christine Florio, Sussex County Department of Human Services, Division of Community and Youth Services at (973) 948-6000 ext. 226 or cflorio@sussex.nj.us.
