Investing in New York’s safety by expanding Judges ability to sentence non-violent drug addicts to drug rehab instead of jail time.
On April 2, 2009 the Senate passed the Rockefeller Drug Law Reforms in New York which will enable the state to help rehabilitate non-violent addicted criminals instead of incarcerating them. The Rockefeller Drug Laws were passed in 1973 as a one size fits all punitive approach which has wasted billions of dollars instead of allowing non-violent addicted criminals to have the option of rehabilitation. Right now in New York there are approximately 12,000 non-violent offenders in prison which cost the state on average $45,000 a year per inmate. The cost of inpatient drug rehab is roughly around $30,000 and will be more beneficial ending the cycle of addiction and allowing these non-violent offenders to once again become productive drug free members of society. Narconon Arrowhead is one the largest and most successful inpatient rehabilitation program in the world and offers 24 hours a day care to our clients.
Finding treatment can be exhausting especially when your not sure what your looking for. It’s always good to do some research about the different types of treatment options available before making a decision. You want to find the program that best matches your specific needs. There are literally thousands of treatment options available: long term rehab, short term rehab, inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, detoxification, and several types of meeting just to name a few. The list goes on and on and it can be overwhelming. Some treatment options will substitute one drug for another while others will leave you walking out the door 100% drug free.
The goal of anyone who is entering into drug treatment on their own is most likely a person who’s ready for a change. Others who are sentenced to drug rehab may not have the same desire but, if they are placed in the proper type of treatment they too can achieve great success and move forward in a drug free happy life. Drug rehab changes the lives of hundreds of thousands each year. Families that were once torn apart by addiction are now together again. Mothers and fathers get their children back and children get their parents back, sisters and brothers are reunited and lessons are learned from all their mistakes. When an addict goes through rehab they make some sever changes in themselves so it’s important for the family and friends to get educated on recovery and the type of treatment their loved one goes through so they to can make the proper changes.
