— 1936 - 2005 —

An Atlantic City native, Brooks spent his early years in a life and death struggle with drug addiction. After conquering his own addiction, he worked to deter others from substance abuse. In 1969, Brooks co-founded NARCO, Inc., and, with volunteers, began to treat alcohol addiction. Several years later the group incorporated as the Institute for Human Development (IHD), a substance abuse program that set the bar for treatment programs across the nation. He served as the Institute's Executive Director from it inception to 1993. "The Institute" became one of the largest drug and alcohol treatment facilities in the State of New Jersey. Mr. Books studied business administration, human resources and psychology at Atlantic Community College and Rutgers University to enhance his skills. As a frontline soldier in the war against drug abuse, Brooks changed many people's lives for the better, and for that this community salutes his valiant efforts.
