The origins of Unity Alternative Therapy of NJ began in 2018 when lifelong New Jersey residents, and board certified pain management physicians, eres looking for solutions to help his youngest son, who suffers from chronic pain. They spent the last thirty-five years working to mitigate pain through traditional medical procedures. Looking for an alternative to prescription opioids, Unity Alternative Therapy of New Jersey was created.  

UAT of New Jersey's mission is to increase the awareness and application of cannabis within the medical community and provide the highest quality medical cannabis products for independent dispensaries in New Jersey.

UAT of New Jersey has surveyed the state’s Medicinal Marijuana Program patients about current accessibility and found significant deficits in product quality and availability. Our company is working to solve this issue and produce cannabis products that New Jersey MMP patients prefer and supply the independent dispensaries.


By combining our history of medical-based research on pain management and customer responsiveness to specific product requirements and artisanal batches, Unity Alternative Therapy of New Jersey is well-positioned to become a trusted and effective voice for this burgeoning industry.


UAT of New Jersey will start small in Irvington, N.J. Creating jobs in this burgeoning field and training a strong, knowledgeable workforce.




As a wholly-owned Black company, Unity Alternative Therapy of New Jersey seeks to increase knowledge of cured cannabis flower products and the potential health benefits for New Jersey residents. UAT of New Jersey is committed to cultivating the highest quality, sustainable cannabis  products for New Jersey patients.


Unity Alternative Therapy of New Jersey was founded in 2018.  We are a born and bred proud New Jersey company committed to our state, people, and communities and the cannabis products they deserve.

The catalyst of UAT of New Jersey is David, who had chronic pain.  In order to mitigate David’s chronic condition, the use of opioids is often used to ease pain.  Prescription opioids can be used to treat moderate-to-severe pain and are often prescribed following surgery and injury, or for health conditions such as cancer.  In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the acceptance and use of prescription opioids for the treatment of chronic, non-cancer pain, such as back pain or osteoarthritis, despite serious risks and the lack of evidence about their long-term effectiveness.  The use of prescription opioids poses serious risks of addiction, abuse, and overdose.  David believed that the consequences of prescription opioids outweighed the benefits of the painkillers.  He began to manage his pain with cannabis and did not need to utilize  prescription opioids.  Dr. Pitchford became fascinated with David’s findings, and soon realized he found similar results in his patients.


UAT of New Jersey is in the application process for a license to cultivate cannabis in New Jersey. The company is finalizing site acquisition, final cost of equipment from vendors and construction estimates from contractors.
