Summary
"The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) and the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) are pleased to present this Blueprint for a Public Health and Safety Approach to Drug Policy. An independent organization since 1847, NYAM addresses the health challenges facing the world's urban populations through interdisciplinary approaches to policy leadership, innovative research, evaluation, education, and community engagement. DPA is the nation's leading organization promoting current drug policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health, and human rights. DPA and NYAM are organizations with very different missions and histories but a shared understanding that New York's current policy approach to drugs is failing. We joined together to examine New York's current drug policies and to reimagine how those policies could realize better health and public safety outcomes, through a more coordinated, public health-oriented approach based on the four pillars model of prevention, treatment, harm reduction, and public safety. Believing that good public policies should be developed in collaboration with those directly affected by them, we spent over a year holding community consultations across the state asking New York residents how drug use and drug policies affected them and their neighborhoods and what should be done to move the state forward. We also met with experts, policymakers, and service providers and conducted an extensive review of the literature. This Blueprint is the result of these research activities"--Academy website
