#StraighttoTreatment launched in an effort to help fight addiction

Mantua Township Police enforce new #StraighttoTreatment program.

The Mantua Police Department has finally rolled out its #StraighttoTreatment (#STT) program. If you or someone you know is struggling with addiction issues and are looking for help, starting on Apr. 22, you can stop by the police department on any given Thursday, from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.

At the station, the police will begin the application process and negotiate with courts to postpone outstanding cases while you or someone you know is seeking treatment. If you cannot make it on Thursdays, you can find another town in the county that hosts the same program on a different day.

For more information, you can visit the station at 405 Main St., Mantua NJ, or visit mantuatownship.com/departments/police/
