According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, substance abuse is increasing in America. In a 2012 survey, approximately 23.9 million Americans reported using an illicit drug or abusing a prescription medication in the past month.
The "Drug Identification and Recognition to Support Tribal Justice" training was developed to meet the ever-increasing needs for professionals to remain current on the most abused drugs in today’s society.
