Abstract

In Japan, drug users are not treated as addicts, but are recognized as criminals, which means that they are not defined as entities in need of "recovery" from addiction to drugs. Therefore, I would like to focus on American society in search of clues toward the treatment of drug users as addicts in Japan.<br> In the United States, drug-court (a criminal justice diversion program to support addicts) makes use of a cooperative relationship, "a continuum of care," composed of judges, prosecutors, defense counsels, probation officers, treatment agencies, and local communities. This allows addicts to have legal authority for "recovery" from addiction. Consequently, the resources for "recovery" being developed in the United States are wide-ranging.<br> In addition, this paper focuses on two particular resources for "recovery." First, 12 step groups are a mainstream form of self-help. The other alternative is recovery groups which take the opposite approach. While the former sets the addict's autonomy aside, the latter utilizes the addict's autonomy not to waste economical and human resources.<br> This paper undertakes two tasks. The first task is to analyze the power structure of the drug-court. The second is to determine how this power structure impacts the resources for "recovery" and to raise the question of recovered entity.
