Getting The Judge to Offer Rehab vs. Prison

No matter which way you slice the pie, prisons do not perform well in rehabilitating offenders. Programs are frequently punitive, and according to a report in the Washington Post, about 66 percent of prisoners, within three years of their release, commit crimes again. In many instances, the new crime is more serious than the one that previously landed an offender in prison. This is especially bad news for people in prison on drug crimes. However, rehab should be an option for many prisoners. We published a post here http://delaware-valley.biz/drug-treatment/facing-drug-charges-rehab-is-an-option/ about this topic.
