New Directions California: A Public Health and Safety Approach To Drug Policy

Co-hosted by the Drug Policy Alliance and the California Society of Addiction Medicine, New Directions California convened over a range of stakeholders and explored a comprehensive, balanced approach to drug policy, which recognizes that successful strategies include prevention, harm reduction, treatment and public safety.

With 30,000 people locked up for a nonviolent drug offense in California, prisons are bursting at the seams and busting our budget. And yet drug prevention and treatment funding is suffering devastating cutbacks, making treatment harder to find than ever.
