What is CEPP?
Conditional Extension Pending Placement (CEPP).  In New Jersey, the status of CEPP was created by a 1983 New Jersey Supreme Court decision in re: S.L., 94 N.J. 128 (1983), for individuals who no longer met the standard for involuntary commitment, but for whom there was no present appropriate placement in the community.  DMHS' Home to Recovery-CEPP Plan's goal is to insure that each person in a state hospital on CEPP status have available and appropriate community mental health treatment options in order to be discharged to the community of their choice within a timely manner.
