Discussion 1: Anti-Discrimination Law and Laws Protecting Individuals With Addiction

There are very specific laws and advocacy efforts to protect individuals with addictions. Only in the past thirty years have people with addictions had legal protection from discrimination (Lawinfo, 2009). Anti-discrimination laws exist to provide people struggling with addiction the opportunity to receive treatment without suffering punitive actions. These include:

· Affordable Care Act

· American with Disabilitites Act

· Children’s Health Act

· Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act

· Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act

· Sober Truth on Preventing (STOP) Underage Drinking Act

· Trial Law and Order Act (TLOA)

For this Discussion, research the federal Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act and one other act listed above in the Walden Library and reputable Internet sources. Consider how you might respond to the scenario provided utilizing the two acts.
