The Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc. ----a.n~

Delinquency, Inc. are co-sponsoring a meeting to be held
Tuesday, April 18 at 3:00 p.m. in the conference room of
the Trust Company of Geor g ia to discuss the problem of the
chronic a lcoholic court o f fender.
We feel that such a conference at this time is imperative
in view of the recent decisions of the federal Courts of Appeal
which held that the chronic alcoholic should not be confined
as a criminal but rath e r should be t re at e d as one in need o f
me dic a l a ss is tanc e .
Enclosed is a l ist o f tho se pers o ns invi t e d to attend
this meeting as well as some materi
a l relating to the problem
{
of the alcoholic and a tr e atment plan prepared b y the Communit y
Council.
We are hop eful t h a t a n ov e r a ll pl a n in whic h t h e repr e sent a t ives o f the City, County a n d S t a t e will pa rti cipa t e wil l
be f o rt h coming .
