Alcohol and Drug Laws in Paterson, NJ

New Jersey Good Samaritan Law

This statewide statute protects people who seek emergency medical assistance for someone who appears to be experiencing a drug overdose. If you call 911 for an overdose victim—even if you call for yourself—you cannot be arrested, charged, or prosecuted for possession or use of illegal drugs. However, if you have a large amount of any illicit substance and appear to be involved in trafficking, you won’t qualify for legal immunity under this statute.7

Protected Medical Leave for Employees

If you’re living with a serious addiction that affects your ability to work, you may qualify for up to 12 weeks of unpaid, protected leave from your job so you can get treatment. When you return to work, you must be offered the same position or an equivalent with equal or higher pay. Under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), employers with at least 25 employees must provide this accommodation to all qualifying staff members.8

New Jersey Recovery Courts

Throughout New Jersey, qualifying nonviolent offenders with moderate to severe substance use disorders can opt in to the recovery court program in lieu of traditional court proceedings. The program has multiple phases and requires a two-year commitment, involving supervised probation, regular court reporting, and participation in clinical addiction treatment. Program graduates may be eligible for record expungement, depending on their criminal history.9

Expanded Naloxone Access

In 2021, New Jersey health officials issued new, blank naloxone standing orders available to both pharmacies and the general public. These orders make it possible for anyone at risk of an opioid overdose to obtain naloxone from a licensed pharmacy and other entities without a prescription. Anyone who may be able to use naloxone to save an overdose victim’s life can also obtain and administer the medication without a prescription.10, 11
