New Jersey recognizes that untreated substance abuse and mental illness have a significant fiscal and human impact on government, individuals and families. The Council annually submits a Comprehensive Statewide Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Master Plan, inclusive of a state government component, to the governor and the state legislature.

The Plan is to include recommended allocations to state departments, local governments, agencies and service providers of all state and federal funds for alcoholism and drug abuse treatment, prevention, research, evaluation, education and public awareness. It is also to incorporate and unify all state, county, local and private alcoholism and drug abuse initiatives as well as include an emphasis on prevention, community awareness, and family and youth services.
