Sovereign Health Examines the Drug Policies of the Presidential Candidates


San Clemente, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/16/2016 --Sovereign Health, a leading national provider of behavioral health treatment services, is proud to release the eighth installment of its "State of Addiction Policy Editorial Series." The article, "State of Addiction Policy: A look at competing drug policies in the presidential election," takes a close look at the drug policies proposed by the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, respectively. Drug abuse has become a key issue in the presidential race, with each side offering a very different strategy to address issues such as painkiller abuse and marijuana legalization. The outcome of the election could have a major impact on the future of addiction treatment.

This last editorial follows "State of Addiction Policy: Behavioral health care challenges in the Hispanic community," which examines the special behavioral health needs of the Hispanic community, a population that has been historically underrepresented in treatment. Identifying and rectifying the challenges some in the Hispanic community face can help individuals in this rapidly growing population get the services they need.

"The State of Addiction Policy" series encompasses multiplatform coverage, including investigative reporting, educational articles, infographics and interactive elements to both inform and engage the nation's readership on the issues.

The behavioral health treatment center will continue to educate professionals, patients and readers on subjects that affect the future of mental health and addiction treatment.
