by wpengine / Friday, 01 September 2017 / Published in Uncategorized
This webinar addresses the differences in the culture and mission between criminal justice and treatment of addiction. It will emphasize the path to achieving outcomes of increased public safety, decreased legal recidivism and crime, safety for children and families by expecting accountable, real change to reach public safety goals. It will contrast passive, compliant participation in treatment programs phases where clients too often just “do time” in treatment; and will discuss the use of incentives and sanctions that promote treatment engagement and sustainable change. We will also discuss punishing for rule breaking and positive drug tests; and abstinence-oriented versus abstinence-mandated approaches.
