“When I first entered office, I vowed to address mental health and addiction issues head-on rather than sweep them under the rug like previous administrations,” Governor McCrory told a group gathered in a Drug Treatment Court in the Cumberland County Courthouse. “These recommendations will help us build on our progress to divert mental health patients and those fighting addiction from emergency rooms and county jails into much needed treatment.” To continue reading, click here.
