This September 16, 2020 webinar, hosted by the National District Attorneys Association in conjunction with OJJDP's NTTAC, provided an overview on the latest research around substance use disorders and recovery. Given the preventable and potentially chronic nature of problematic substance use and it’s correlation with offending, prosecutors in juvenile court have an important and influential role to play in both preventing and addressing use early on. The concept of recovery support was covered as well.
