People with alcohol or other drug disease face public and private policies that restrict their access to appropriate health care, employment, and public benefits, discouraging them from seeking treatment, robbing them of hope for recovery, and costing society millions of dollars. Join Together, a project of Boston University School of Public Health, formed a national policy panel in the spring of 2002 to address this discrimination. The panelists developed the principles and recommendations contained in this report, relying principally upon the written and oral testimony which they received. Join Together was assisted in this effort by the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Substance Abuse, which facilitated the panel’s initial hearing at the ABA’s Annual Meeting in August 2002. The policies contained herein represent the positions and views solely of the Policy Panel, and should not be construed to be those of the American Bar Association unless and until approved by the American Bar Association’s House of Delegates. As of the publication of this report, the House of Delegates has not considered any of the policies. (Authors)
