Included in the clinical profile is employment as a Certified Alcoholism Counselor at the Alcoholism Treatment Unit of Mountainside Hospital in Montclair. At Rahway Prison, under a State Law Enforcement Planning Agency (SLEPA) grant Kane developed and delivered the first alcoholism treatment program for adult male inmates in New Jersey.
Kane participated in the unique collaborative effort among the NJ Department of Health, Department of Corrections and the State Parole Board. Beginning in 1984, working in the Mutual Agreement Program (MAP) Kane visited every state and county correctional facility to evaluate and recommend suitable state prison inmates for 90 days of alcoholism treatment as a condition of early parole.
From the initial Essex Countermeasures Program, Kane operated the Essex County Intoxicated Driver Resource Program (IDRC). Included were the initial two day 12 hour program and a sixteen-week outpatient experience.

In addition he established and operated employee assistance programs for Thomas’ English Muffins (CPC), the federal Defense Contract Audit Agency, Paddington Distillers and. As Director of the Regional Employee Assistance Program (REAP) Mr. Kane established and operated contract employee assistance programs for educational and support staff in the following New Jersey school districts: Bergenfield, Clifton, East Orange, Fair Lawn, Montclair, Passaic and West Orange.
