War On Us: How the War on Drugs and Myths about Addiction & Treatment Have Created a War on All of Us
Attorney Colleen Cowles is an author, speaker, teacher, advocate, and most importantly, a Mom who personally experienced addiction in her family. Her passion and expertise are focused on minimizing the pain that families experience, improving outcomes for those suffering from substance use disorder, and advocating for reform of the criminal justice system in regard to drug policy. She is author of the online course '20 Steps to Freedom: When Someone You Love is Addicted to Drugs', and author of 'War on Us: How the War on Drugs and Myths about Addiction & Treatment Have Created a War on All of Us'. Colleen speaks at corporate, public, and university events, and is a frequent radio and TV guest speaking on topics related to addiction. Her 15 years of research, interviews with experts, work with clients and personal experience give Colleen broad expertise and practical insight into this important topic.
Drug addiction is a SERIOUS issue - but in many cases, evidence-based treatment is unavailable, medical issues are treated as crimes, and drug policy can be more damaging than addiction itself. Over a trillion dollars has been wasted on the destructive War on Drugs, over 1/3 of the labor force has a criminal record minimizing opportunities, and more people are behind bars in the the U.S. than anywhere else in the world at any time in history. We know the answers, but myths, money and politics prevent application of known solutions. War on Us provides insight into the issues and outlines implementable solutions. A 'must read' for anyone impacted by the addiction and overdose epidemic or the War on Drugs including parents, taxpayers, employers, educators, students, legislators, and treatment, criminal justice and medical professionals.
Parents, taxpayers, employers, educators, students, legislators, and treatment, criminal justice and medical professionals. Primarily U.S. readers.
