On April 19, 2013 the New Jersey Chapter of the Employee Assistance Professionals Association (EAPA) awarded the inaugural Riley Regan Award to Adrian Hollywood (deceased). Adrian was an employee assistance professional with a long history of dedication to serving the communities of New Jersey. Most recently, Adrian was known for his work with American Addiction Centers and NCADD.
The Riley Regan Award is dedicated to “the individual who exemplifies the service of an EAP”. At the same meeting, Barbara Martin, of Princeton Healthcare, was named the NJ EAP of the year.
Adrian was listed as an “Advocacy Leader” in the NCADD New Jersey directory, with the following description:
“Adrian Hollywood has worked for the past 13 years in the behavioral health community, primarily as a counselor. His most recent position, as a Treatment Consultant, enabled him to help individuals get placed in treatment throughout New Jersey and the rest of the country. Adrian has been a member of the New Jersey Employee Assistance Professionals since March 2010, working with hospitals, unions, and professional groups regarding addiction needs. Adrian feels strongly “it is my duty to stand for those in need and ease their obstacles in their communities.”
The NCADD is a private nonprofit organization which advocates on behalf of those affected by drug and alcohol addiction and their families. The organization manages more than $22 million in addiction treatment funding, and operates the Substance Abuse Initiative (SAI), funded by the New Jersey Division of Family Development. The SAI provides addiction and mental health clinical assessments and care coordination services to welfare recipients throughout the state of New Jersey.
