60-minute presentation includes a Q&A session
CLE: 1 Credit

Over the past 20 years there have been tremendous strides in the research around addiction and recovery. Through the adoption of principles such as Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC), and Recovery Capital (RC), policies and practices are expanding to include strategies that enhance early engagement and recovery initiation, and maintain the quality of personal/family life in the long-term (White and Kelly, 2011). Recognizing that addiction is not only potentially chronic, but it is also preventable. As with other disorders, the earlier the intervention, the better the prognosis.

Given the link between substance use disorders and criminal offending, the leverage of the justice system has the potential to turn lives around, so it is imperative that those on the front lines of the justice system understand these concepts. From arrest through to re-entry, the principles of ROSC are emerging as critical components in reducing recidivism and transforming lives.

Please join Dr. David Best, Professor of Criminology from the University of Derby in the United Kingdom, and Susan Broderick, Program Director at NDAA, for an exciting webinar that will cover these concepts and offer examples of how to incorporate them.  Prosecutors have long been aware of the problems that drugs and alcohol pose to public safety, it is time that they are educated about the solutions.
