Criminal Justice system plays an integral role in drug use prevention by protecting public safety, reducing the availability of drugs and discouraging use in the population. It can also be a powerful vehicle to promote recovery by leveraging its sentencing authority to promote treatment, healing and overall recovery of individuals, families and communities dealing with drug use.
