School Ombudsman System For Drug Users Urged Oat REGINA (CP) School sys- tems should establish an om- budsman system to help reha- bilitate' young drug users, the LeDain inquiry into the non- medical use of drugs was told today. Each school should, have an ombudsman with whom stu- dents could discuss drug prob- lems without fear of the law, said Dr. Sol Cohen, a Regina psychiatrist. A student seeking help would be offered a contract under which he and his parents would agree to a program of therapy. Dr. Cohen, a director of the recently-formed New Ap- proaches to Drug Abuse organi- zation in Regina, said the stu- dent and his parents would at- tend weekly counselling ses- sions. Length of the therapy would depend on the youth's willingness to continue. Dr. Cohen said marijuana should be redassified between alcohol and amphetamines. GOREN ON BRIDGE OUKU3 R.
