Intersection of Addictions, Race, and Criminal Justice
This webinar is hosted by NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals
The continuing fight for racial equity and social justice has increased focus on racial inequities in the criminal justice system and prompted discussion about the relationship between criminal justice and addiction treatment. Mandating individuals to treatment has led to dependency between the treatment and the criminal justice systems. Has this relationship caused disparate negative impacts on Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC)? Has it contributed to trauma and victimization of BIPOC populations with substance use disorders? Join us as we explore the intersection of criminal justice, addiction treatment, and race.
