Minimizing Harm: A New Crime Policy for Modern America

By Edward L. Rubin | Go to book overview

present time -- needle exchanges and methadone maintenance as prevention modalities, and drug courts and supervised probation as treatment modalities. All these measures fit within the crime-control model for drug policy that is presently in place. Ultimately, it is to be hoped that changes in public attitudes will allow us to move away from this model, which is expensive and demonstrably ineffective, and toward a different model that makes use of education, social reform, and nonpunitive treatment as our primary response to the problem of drug abuse.
