(EMAILWIRE.COM, October 20, 2015 ) Columbus, OH -- When Gloucester's police department introduced the idea of helping drug addicts who willingly turned in their illicit paraphernalia under a no-questions asked policy everyone thought they were crazy. But now we're seeing tangible results that's saving on incarceration costs. According to the Ledger Enquirer the program has placed over 200 people with untreated substance use disorders in treatment. The program reconnects addicts with their ability to govern their lives free from addictive substances. The Ledger
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Columbus is an addiction treatment center providing individualized treatment for those with untreated drug and alcohol use disorders. The facility asserts similar protocols must be set in place around the nation to curb national overdose rates resolutely.
An associate from the facility comments, "Gloucester has embraced a research based model to combat addiction- and that is to treat the disease at its source, as opposed to slapping a poorly placed band aid in the form of cell bars. Time and time again we see incarceration is not the answer to helping people recover from addiction and re-enter society productively.
"Research shows those who remain in rehabilitation long term are more apt to lead productive and lucrative lives. Gloucester's program has only been in effect for a few months- if the entire US adopted similar policies, we would see a radical decrease in overdoses and addiction rates; as many who want to go to treatment fear the reprimand of the law, and stay their hands of enrolling.
"Price is another factor barring many from getting treatment. State funded rehabilitation is the wave of the future that will help to redress our national health crisis."
