The concept of jailing offenders has problems in terms of cost, though it remains the best way to get people sober and stop them from committing crimes. The ideas that are offered for alternative sentencing and treatments are bogged down in foggy goals. The treatment approach to drug abuse is littered with people who are making serious money counseling and "treating". It has been underway for enough time to tote up scores and see that it also has been unsuccessful and one can't help but wonder if the goal is to counter addiction or is the primary goal to obtain money from the government to support the small army of addiction specialists. The article starts out by say that the Council is making inroads into curbing addiction, but is it really? What are the budgets, including salaries of this facilities and what ARE the "cure" rates? Has addiction reduced in the years that those programs are around. Is ther accountability there? Does that work? Seems not.
