Description


From Statistics to Solutions:

The statistics are alarming. According the the National Institite on Drug Abuse, children and adolescents with psychiatric conditions are at a higher risk of abusing drugs than other youth. Additionally, as many as six in ten substance abusers also have at least one mental health disorder.

Featuring Carol Falkowski

Carol Falkowski is the former director of the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division of the Minnesota Department of Human Services, the state agency responsible for the administration of public funds for prevention and addiction treatment services in Minnesota. She has been part of a nationwide drug abuse surveillance network of the National Institute on Drug Abuse since 1986. She was director of research communications at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation for a decade.

Falkowski has served in an advisory capacity to numerous Federal, State and private agencies including the FDA, the Department of Justice, the Rand Corporation, and the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.

Her comments have been sought by many media outlets including USA Today, the New York Times, the BBC, National Public Radio, CNN with Anderson Cooper, and the Today Show.

She is currently CEO of Drug Abuse Dialogues -- a Twin Cities-based training and consultation organization, and considered one of Minnesota's foremost experts on drug abuse.
