My interview with Dr. Drew and Leann Tweeden on their radio show was awesome. As a doctor, mental health and addiction specialist, Dr. Drew is very passionate about this issue and I’m so grateful he’s decided to speak out publicly.
He believes the homeless epidemic is almost one hundred percent a mental health and drug addiction crisis caused by changes to laws and the breakdown of mental health care.
He believes government has no idea how to handle this because they are not putting experts in mental health and drug addiction in charge in any capacity, such as the homeless commission that the Sacramento Mayor, Darrell Steinberg, is heading for the entire state.
He believes that by removing tools we had to solve drug addiction and mental health, and leaving people to die in the streets, the government is committing mass murder.
He will be here in Sacramento in November for a panel/forum with The Mayor.
Here is the link to the interview, which is about 20 minutes long.
