More rehab, not bigger jails, will help addiction

-A A +A

I saw on TV and read in the newspapers about the rehabilitation program at Brushy Mountain.

If the cities and county court system had this program, these people might not be in prison. Addicts to drugs and alcohol are put in jail and have to pay bail and court costs. If they can’t, they are stuck in jail and can’t get jobs.

Bigger jails are not the answer. These addicts need rehab to productively return to society.

Lives might be changed or saved.
