Drug Treatment and Public Policy
Both Real Cost of Prisons and Juvienation are giving deserved shout-outs to the Justice Policy Institute’s latest publication in its series on non-corr sent alternatives to stopping crime and reducing costs. This one, after reports on education’s impact and employment’s, focuses on drug treatment, noting yet one more time that every dollar spent on effective drug treatment can save a community $18.52 in decreased crime and other costs. Expect everything in what we do to change just as soon as policymakers read the hard copy, of course.
