    Addiction is a health, not a criminal justice issue.
    Treatment for addiction should be provided by the public health system.
    Many people struggling with addiction also have a co-occurring mental illness.
    We need a seamless continuum of care that includes early intervention, treatment, post-treat support and community reintegration.

    Families should be part of the treatment and recovery planning processes.
    Treating addiction and concurrent disorders is cost effective.
