Chris Christie becomes unlikely hero for New Jersey drug treatment centers

Wednesday 10:53 GMT

“In New Jersey, a couple of things happened that really helped the addiction treatment field under Christie’s governorship,” said Oberman, who is CEO of the John Brooks Recovery Center, which operates four treatment centers in and around Atlantic City.

Christie opened the first drug treatment facility for the state’s prisoners (Oberman operates it), cut red tape for people who have private insurance and started a program to expand availability of naloxone, a drug that reverses overdoses.
