The TRU will also support Rutgers', local, and state-wide treatment and recovery programs. Participating elements include especially Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS), New Jersey Medical School (NJMS), School of Arts and Sciences, Center for Alcohol Studies, Center for Tobacco Studies, School of Public Health, School of Social Work, School of Nursing, School of Health Professions (SHP), University Behavioral Health Care (UBHC), School of Pharmacy, the Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research and the affiliated U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers in East Orange and Lyons.
