SOMERVILLE, NJ- On December 6th, 2017 Baker and Rannells Attorneys hosted a contingent of government officials from Jiangsu Province, China on their fact-finding-mission to the United States regarding drug policy and treatment programs.  Baker and Rannells provided a power point overview of Drug law, Drug Court programs, and various treatment, rehabilitation, and recovery modalities that are used in the U.S.

The Presentation was followed by a visit to Freedom House Treatment Center located in Clinton, NJ.  Baker and Rannells selected Freedom House because of its significant program success. Freedom House is a non-profit organization that provides a full spectrum of addiction services to adult men and women suffering from substance use and co-occurring disorders. Their motto is “Saving Lives and Reuniting Families”. They are recognized as an international model having a treatment center in Denmark that follows their program structure.

Both parties at the meeting discussed the differences in culture and substance of choice between countries. As heroin is a rising epidemic in the United States, so crack cocaine and methoxamine is the leading epidemic in China. Gao Rujun, Director General for Drug Administration – Jiangsu Province, presented Freedom House with a gift as a token of appreciation, explaining that these are the gifts presented to Kings.
