Discussion: Social Change Through Legislation

The repercussions of addiction are among the most pressing health and social issues worldwide. Although billions of dollars are spent annually in the United States attacking the problem, public policies on funding have yet to be agreed upon and remain controversial. The controversy revolves around which public policies best deter addiction: those that criminalize acts associated with the disorder or those that treat the disorder (Doweiko, 2019).

Given the ever-changing nature of legislation, it is important to stay informed about the most current reforms and public policies that may promote social changes in addiction treatment.

For this Discussion, search the Internet and select current legislation as it relates to reform and social change for the treatment and prevention of addiction. Your search may include the following types of legislation.

  • Legislation targeting the      criminal aspects of drug abuse
  • Legislation targeting      prevention of drug abuse from an early age
  • Legislation promoting      harm-reduction efforts
  • Legislation targeting      treatment of substance abuse

Consider how federal and Ohio legislation has addressed addiction treatment and prevention. Research, review, and reflect on your professional code of ethics and how social legislation impacts an addiction professional’s ability to adhere to the code.

Provide a 400-word Discussion Post providing the following content:

– A description of which type of legislation might be the most effective in bringing about lasting social change for the treatment and prevention of addiction and explain why. 

– Explain how social change legislation might support or undermine the professional code of ethics. 

– Finally, explain the potential implications for a helping professional. 

Support your response using this week’s resources and the current literature. Must contain at least 4 references and citations
