Restorative Justice and a New Criminal Law of Substance Abuse.
Braithwaite, John
Youth & Society, v33 n2 p227-48 Dec 2001
Case studies illustrate how a restorative approach to substance abuse can bring about the recognition of profound community injustices and how confronting injustices can help tackle substance abuse. Outlines the research and development needed to test the hypothesis that criminalization of the harm caused by substance abuse (e.g., burglary) may be an effective way to reduce substance abuse when it is used to trigger well-designed restorative processes.
