Not in my backyard...to what effect?
New Jersey, though a state pushing hard on advocacy and attention to substance use disorder and preventive resources such as Naloxone training, presents tension in residential settings for inpatient drug rehab use. NIMBY, or not in my backyard, is the concept of placing restraints or barriers for uses other than family settings for residential areas. Treatment, in an inpatient setting, is meant to have a one on one family atmosphere and change the format of living permits. This situation of a drug rehab suing the state shows that there is still stigma and a need to overcome the communication between neighborhoods and its effect, mostly positive shown on research, to the community.
