In this webcast, panelists with direct experience in developing and implementing different models will describe and explore the difference between pre-arrest diversion, social contact referrals, and harm reduction-based "Health Hub" interventions. Participants will hear harm reduction, drug policy, law enforcement, and case management perspectives on the strengths, weaknesses, advantages, and limitations of these different models.
