Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti express Syrange Exchange





Recently Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti wrote a letter to congress expressing his desire to see successful needle exchange programs set up in the county.
Lamberti’s letter stated: “The dramatically high rate of new HIV infections in South Florida is directly related to widespread substance abuse. These co-occurring epidemics create a synergy that heightens risk behaviors and results in tremendous costs to both the affected individuals and the community. While substance abuse prevention and treatment remain vital, it is also essential that the health consequences of injection drug use be mitigated by needle exchange programs.”
Lamberti also expressed his concern for tax payers having to foot the bill for caring for inmates who are HIV positive.
Lamberti wrote: “Until we can get drug and substance abuse under control and find a cure for the spread of the AIDS virus, containment of the disease should be one of our strategies. As we speak today, there are 200 inmates in the Broward County jail who are HIV positive. The cost of providing AIDS medications to these inmates is approximately $1,000 per month per inmate. This equates to a $200,000 monthly expenditure for AIDS medications alone for our jail system. This represents an extreme tax burden to the residents of Broward County. Considering the economic stress that our citizens face today, any efforts to reduce the HIV infection population should be pursued.”

  1. Al Lamberti ought to know plenty about drugs from his campaign manager that is a cocaine smuggler.
    Have a look:

  2. Well I am concern about the humanistic part of how we are treating drug addicts. Not only do we stigmatize them and think they are all the same. "They rob for their drugs and commit all kinds of crimes" when yes in fact it does happen but the numbers I have seen are very small percentage. Most addicts work and pay for their drugs with their own money. The last time I look they have the highest rate of new HIV infection and 90% have one of the hepatitis diseases. Never mind that the treatment they receive of the 12 Steps is not supported by scientific research like all the other medical treatment in existence. In fact we know very little about the 12 Steps' safety and it efficacy. They claim it is spiritual program and although there is some research on spiritual process, most treatment center hasn’t the faintest idea of how to implement an Evidence Base Treatment Protocol. I am alarmed by the fact that most clinicians in mental health and substance abuse have never been trained in "Scientific Critical Thinking". What they consider critical thinking is usually caprices and arbitrary because they never read the scientific articles they claim and imply their treatment is based on.
