PARAMUS, N.J. — Care Plus NJ's program that provides primary care for addicts and people with mental illnesses is one of three New Jersey facilities that will share a $1.2 million federal grant, northjersey.com reports.

The federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is granting $400,000 to the Paramus group to forge networks to ensure that people with mental health issues and addiction, as well as other conditions, get the full range of services they need, according to the report.

Care Plus is working with Paterson-based Turning Point, a residential and outpatient drug treatment center. The drug treatment and mental health center has reduced emergency visits by 85 percent in recent years for residents of their program, Care Plus NJ's vice president Kathleen Bianco told northjersey.com

The healthcare facility provides assessments, residential and outpatient care for 20,000 people annually.
