More than 100 members from the law enforcement, behavioral health and substance abuse communities attended the event to discuss how PTACC strategies can be used to counter the ongoing opioid crisis on a local level.

In a statement, Ammon said PTACC engages in pre-arrest diversion and deflection, a tool that unites law enforcement officers, behavioral health service providers and other community leaders in a shared goal to redirect eligible individuals away from the criminal justice system and into community-based behavioral health treatment and recovery support.

Executives from Ammon Labs were joined at the conference by West Orange Police Chief James Abbott, Morris County Sheriff James Gannon and Sue Ferrere, manager, technical assistance with the Pretrial Justice Institute, to discuss community-oriented solutions to "help stem the deadly scourge of substance misuse and place thousands on a path towards sustainable recovery."

"As a founding partner of the Police, Treatment and Community Collaborative, we're in a unique position to unite law enforcement and treatment providers in order to develop solutions that will help the thousands of individuals currently dealing with substance use disorders," said Charles Cardona, director of corporate development for Ammon, in a statement.

Ammon said that the success of the program inspired several other New Jersey counties to pursue the development of similar programs.View the full article from NJBIZ at http://www.njbiz.com/article/20181212/NJBIZ01/181219949/ammon-labs-hosts-opioid-treatment-strategy-conference.
