Individuals who are addicted to drugs or alcohol require
treatment in order to find long-term recovery, not the threat of
punishment .. if we are serious about reducing substance
abuse, crime and recidivism, and saving taxpayers money,
then we must accept that our criminal justice system is filled
with seriously addicted people who need treatment to change
their behaviour. Drug courts must be the foundation of that
reform. (author’s abstract)
