    Drugs and Abuse in Criminal Justice
    Saturday, July 26

    Presented by Dr. Lester Brown
     CEO, Hole in the Soul Treatment Facility

    We’ll look at the new paradigm shift in policing which is "community policing" looking at drug use and abuse from a treatment perspective, working with treatment agencies to get the arrestee help. We’ll look more toward the disease model than the moral-legal model and cover the historical perspective of the way addicts were looked at from a Law Enforcement perspective, and how U.S. Drug Policy was driven by unfounded fears. Finally, we’ll look at how decriminalization, legalization and harm reduction  move toward a new paradigm shift in thinking.
