A Dose of Hope


Author(s):
Abstract:
The War on Drugs has long been deemed controversial. According to community members in Wake County, not enough resources are being given to programs for prevention and treatment which prove more effective than incarceration. This review of local efforts provides individual perspectives, testimonies of hope, and support in interviews with a former addict, the Alcoholism Treatment Center’s director of substance abuse services, a counselor for addicted inmates, a DARE officer, and participants at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting.
