Today’s Objective:

Today students will do an objective analysis of the Middle East and the efforts their Prison system is taking to help methadone addicted inmates. They will do this by examining case documents from Dr. Mohammad Shahbazi’s presentation in 2010 at I.C.P.A. ( International Corrections and Prisons Association) and determining if they  agree or diagree with his method of treatment for drug addicted prisoners.
