REPORT: Addicted to Drug Courts – Justice Policy Institute 35pp. 116 ref. Vol. Treatment in community is better

Via Scoop.itDrugs, Society and Human Rights
Voluntary treatment in the community has better outcomes and is more
cost‐effective than treatment in the criminal justice system for people with addictions. Expanding access to treatment outside the justice system to people who need it can help increase public safety, save money and improve life outcomes for individuals. Policymakers should expand treatment services through the
public health system so people can get the help they need without having to be arrested!
