Oryx Cohen26 years after the passage of the ADA it is clear that people with mental health and substance use issues are still far from a central concern in considering who has rights and who has responsibilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act. It might be the right time and place to revitalize attention to integrating people with mental health and substance use conditions into the promise of the ADA.
