With opiate addiction at epidemic levels in both urban and rural America, the National Judicial College has crafted a new course that focuses on the neurology of addiction with an emphasis on heroin and painkillers. This course will provide an in-depth analysis of the science behind addiction and offer practical solutions for judges to manage all case types affected by drug addiction. This well help them recognize and understand the issues that plague many Americans today and find ways to effectively deal with these issues to help reduce recidivism.
