NDARC’s justice health and drug policy research evaluates policy in areas of law, policing, harm reduction, prevention and treatment, and identifies more effective responses that can reduce drug related harms. The program draws on expertise from staff and affiliate members in criminology, drug and alcohol policy, health and social policy. This work also encompasses research on the health of people in contact with the forensic system, opportunities for therapeutic outcomes in criminal justice settings, and responses that can reduce drug related harms in and around the criminal justice system.
