Moving Past the Era of Good Intentions: Methamphetamine Treatment Study: May 2006
With LB 425, the Nebraska Legislature declared its readiness to reconfigure the state’s philosophy and response to methamphetamine abuse (“MA”). Specifically, the Legislature wanted the MA Treatment Study to identify the policy and implementation issues which must be resolved to create a coordinated system for the treatment of chemical dependency related to methamphetamine.
A multi-disciplinary research team lead by Dr. T. Hank Robinson of the Juvenile Justice Institute was contracted by the Community Corrections Council to complete the study. The Final report of the MA Treatment Study was completed in May 2006. View the news release and access the initial and final reports.
