Two years into its mission to create and support law enforcement pre-arrest entry points to treatment, the Police Assisted Addiction and Recovery Initiative celebrated and honored the law enforcement partners, public health leaders, and elected officials who have helped grow that mission nationwide.
P.A.A.R.I. welcomed honorees from across the nation who are committed to stemming the tide of opioid addiction by making police a resource for those seeking help in recovery, including Richard Baum, the acting director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.
