Alternatives to criminalization of people who use substances community of interest

See related content

This Community of Interest seeks to build understanding and support stakeholders and decision-makers in pursuing alternatives to the criminalization of people who use/used substances. Together we will tackle stigma associated with substance use, and work to shift the perception of drug use from being a criminal issue to a health issue in need of health-based interventions and responses.
