A Complete Guide To NJ Alternative Treatment Centers

Get Details On Every Location In State

Following up on our most recent article about medical marijuana in the state of New Jersey, below is a complete list of every Alternative Treatment Center operating today.

If you are looking for the closest dispensary to your location, look no further! With 11 Alternative Treatment Centers open for business, and at least 4 more on the way this year, it shouldn't be too difficult to find the right medication for your needs.

For new patients: becoming a medical marijuana patient can be a very overwhelming experience. If you are suffering with an illness and have made the decision to try cannabis as a treatment, then it is important you get the right stuff and have the best experience possible.

When you arrive at the ATC for the first time, you should let the staff know that you are a beginner and that you are unsure of what exactly it is that you need. Each ATC is staffed with employees known as "budtenders", tasked with the job of educating the customer and helping them select medicine based on their individual needs (i.e. pain relief, insomnia, lack of appetite). Armed with an extensive knowledge of cannabis and the specific products for sale in the shop, you should be able to select the best medicine for you.

Alternative Treatment Centers

OK, below is a list of every alternative treatment center that is open for business as of today. It might not hurt to give them a call before you leave home, just to make sure that they haven't been impacted by COVID-19 and are serving patients.
