Drug & Alcohol Rehab Columbus Supports Eliminating Mandatory Sentencing for Low Level Drug Offenders
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 31, 2016 ) Columbus, OH -- Drug and Alcohol Rehab Columbus asserts, reformation to current criminal justice policies in the state of Ohio will help reduce instances of chronic addiction, and help to treat those within the criminal justice system effectively to prevent rates of recidivism. As rates of incarceration continue to climb, addiction treatment continues to be cast to the wayside, perpetuating the cycle of repeat offenders, and unnecessary sentencing for those with low level
With the reformation of minimum sentencing requirements in the state of Ohio Drug and Alcohol Rehab Columbus asserts, treatment based programs as opposed to incarceration are helping diminish rates of addiction and criminal activity around the nation.
An associate from the facility comments:
"Involving the addiction treatment community in matters of criminal instances of substance use and possession seems like a sensible correlation. Unfortunately, for many states this is not the case. Here in Ohio we need to enlist the help of professionals who are trained to address substance use disorders effectively. Treatment models continue to prove their efficacy in both reducing state costs and criminal activity. Incarceration does nothing to treatment substance use disorders, and does not equip prisoners to re-enter society with the tools necessary to prevent further instances of substance use and abuse. Conversely, tying the hands of judges debilitates the criminal justice system from rendering applicable punishment to cases with extenuating circumstances-- from implementing alternative sentencing options which may make more sense than incarceration, and prevent the development of new institutional solutions poised to yield more favorable results. Giving power back to judges and implementing rehabilitation as part of the intrinsic process of the criminal justice system will help prevent addiction and rates of recidivism exponentially."
