30:6C-8. Establishment of aftercare clinics; incorporation in statewide drug abuse treatment and counseling clinics
Each of the several counties, or several counties on a joint cooperative basis, may establish a regional medically oriented clinic to provide aftercare treatment for individuals released or discharged from mental hospitals as provided for herein, or may enter into a contractual relationship with an existing public or private facility to provide such aftercare treatment. On and after July 1, 1971, any clinic theretofore or thereafter established shall become a part of the Statewide system established under this supplementary and amendatory act; provided, however, the board of chosen freeholders of a county in which any such clinic is then presently operating may provide by resolution for such clinic to continue to operate as an independent county agency with the cost therefor to be paid by said county. In such case, the particular clinic shall not become part of the Statewide system, but shall operate as an independent county agency under the direction and at the expense of the county in which it is located; provided, however, it shall conform to standards, rules and regulations promulgated by the commissioner. Thereafter, any such clinic operating as an independent county agency may become part of the Statewide system upon the approval by the commissioner of a resolution adopted by the board of chosen freeholders of such county requesting the commissioner to assume operation and control of such clinic. Copies of resolutions authorized by this section shall be forwarded to the commissioner within 10 days after adoption.
Any county operating a clinic which becomes a part of the Statewide system established hereunder shall maintain, operate and make available to the Department of Health any building, space or other physical facility used by the county clinic for the continued use by the Department of Health at no cost for the Statewide system. Such building, space or other physical facility shall be so made available to the Department of Health at no cost to the Department or the State of New Jersey for a term of 5 years; provided, however, said term may be extended or decreased upon the written agreement of the Commissioner of Health and a resolution therefor by the board of chosen freeholders of the county in which said clinic is located.
