Nova Scotia’s Special Court for Opioid Addicts

Nova Scotia Legal Aid has been an interested and supporting partner in the creation of the Court Monitored Drug Treatment Program and is working toward its expansion. Please find the story of one participant here: Participant Story. Ms. MacPherson’s story demonstrates what inter-governmental and community cooperation can achieve. NSLA is very proud to be involved in the Program by providing direct counsel to all of the Program’s participants and by advocating for not only its implementation, but its expansion.
