Anomalies in Drug Abuse Treatment. Interim Report of the Temporary State Commission to Evaluate the Drug Laws. Legislative Document No. 11.
Betros, Emeel S.; And Others
This interim report of the Temporary New York State Commission to Evaluate the Drug Laws seeks to provide the executive department and the legislature with comprehensive information on the social, fiscal and health problems associated with narcotics addition, and drug abuse. This report is the result of the following: (1) several meetings with treatment, research and law enforcement personnel; (2) a series of visits to treatment and research facilities throughout the state; (3) a variety of questionnaires answered by representatives from more than 400 programs in the state; and (4) six public hearings. The report is sharply critical in many areas; however, no other state has even begun to approach the comprehensiveness of the treatment programs available in New York. Topics discussed in the report include: (1) the methadone controversy; (2) abstinence programs; (3) alcoholism--emphasis without stress; (4) children and parents--time for reconciliation; (5) the Drug Abuse Control Commission; and (6) drunk driving.
