Complex addiction problem requires diversified approach to solutions
Written By Mike Emery
Indiana’s drug czar called the state’s drug addiction challenge a complex problem with many pieces.
Jim McClelland’s goals as the state’s executive director for drug treatment, prevention and enforcement are to “substantially reduce addiction,” “help increase access to treatment” and “help people maintain recovery” enabling them to return to productive members of society.
He and other state and local leaders in the fight against addiction discussed the challenges addiction presents with 75 attendees Thursday evening at a town hall meeting in Reid Health’s Lingle Hall.
