- Full text of "White House Conference on Children, Report to the President" — Children who use drugs or children with other problems should be treated outside the court system. If a child is found using physically and psychologically addictive drugs, he should be diagnosed and treated medically and socially by halfway houses, social counselors, and other available facilities. A juvenile correctional system should include community services of all kinds ; attention should be given to the development of positive programs which will build and strengthen the juvenile receiving corrective treatment; and physical facilities should be made appropriate for encouraging constructive development of children in trouble and in need. We also recommend that appro- priate services be made available to aid the juvenile court in its attempt to differentiate between the child in need of supervision and the child whose needs cannot be met within our existing legal system.
