The Mitchell Hamline School of Law Health Law Institute was pleased to welcome Professors Stacey Tovino and Sara Gordon from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas William S. Boyd School of Law.
Professor Gordon argues that drug and other specialty courts can be part of the transformation of the public perception of addiction as well as the integration of addiction treatment into mainstream medicine by incorporating and endorsing evidence-based strategies for the treatment of addiction, including psychosocial and pharmacological treatments.
Professor Tovino reviews the protections and limitations of three pieces of federal legislation, including the Mental Health Parity Act, signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1996; the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2008; and the Affordable Care Act, signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010.
