STREET DRUGS AND HOMELESSNESS:
A Devastating Combination
PPTFH is seeing increasing numbers of homeless individuals who are using drugs, along with evidence of drug dealing, especially meth. Amanda Cowan, Outreach Director for Clarematrix, an organization focused on substance abuse disorders, will speak about drugs, their effects and research-proven treatments to overcome addiction. Amanda will be joined by Veronica de la Cruz, Los Angeles Deputy City Attorney, who will discuss the legal aspects of drug sales and possession, including pending laws and orders and their implications for people experiencing homelessness.
