Riley Regan, Pioneer And Advocate In Alcoholism And Drug Treatment

His tireless efforts to integrate alcoholism and drug abuse intervention services into the criminal justice system led to the creation of pioneering programs providing treatment to incarcerated alcohol and drug users as well as the development of court-sponsored diversion systems.

In June of 2002, he came out of retirement to become the Director of the New Hampshire Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Recovery. During his seven years of retirement, Mr. Regan was the Chairman of the Kokomo, Indiana Mayor's Task Force on Drug Abuse Prevention; was one of the 10 mentors from across the country on the Robert Wood Johnson project "Developing Leadership in the Substance Abuse Field," continued lecturing at alcohol and drug conferences and institutes, served as an advisor to the State of Indiana's addictions programs and was an expert witness on the American Disabilities and Federal Fair Housing Acts.

Mr. Regan was a recovering alcoholic and drug addict and drew his passion and commitment for his work from his own personal experiences with drugs and alcohol. He was an example of recovery to countless others and dedicated his life to helping alcoholics and drug addicts recover to live dignified and productive lives. 

Mr. Regan holds master's degrees from the University of Maryland School of Social Work and Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. 

He is survived by his wife Katie Morris Regan of Cranford, stepchildren Kathy Maack and Scott Engle, his sister Judith Leary and nephews Patrick and Kevin Leary of Maryland.  Other stepchildren include, Megan Cambridge, Marcy Brack, William Robinson and Jody Bosley.   His parents Blake Evans Regan and John Harold Regan preceded him in death.
