Discussion – Week 11

Public Policy and Advocacy

For this Discussion, you should select a public policy topic, trend, or initiative that is of interest to you. Please go to the Walden Library and locate two journal articles from the last 5 years that are associated with the topic you selected. You will use these articles and your text as supporting resources for this Discussion.

Post by Day 4 an overview of the public policy topic, trend, or initiative you selected. Then, describe how this benefits or hinders access to treatment, motivation for treatment, and relapse prevention for addiction.  Then describe ways current policies or procedures could improve and your potential role as advocate and social change agent.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
