The Benefits of Alternative Sentencing
- Choosing a rehabilitation program in place of incarceration can help save taxpayers money by helping drug addiction offenders out of the prison system and stay clean and sober. A study from the Research Triangle Institute found that 150 felony offenders in a drug treatment program in Brooklyn, New York found that rehabilitation had saved the New York City system over $7 million.
- Throughout the United States , the criminal justice system is overloaded with drug-related cases. Nonviolent drug cases and offenders are directed out of the criminal justice system so that attention is diverted to other types of more serious crimes.
- Individuals who enroll in rehabilitation programs are allowed to get the underlying or root cause of their drug-related offense instead of worsening the problem by sending nonviolent cases to straight to jail. When it comes to mass incarceration, we have the highest recidivism rate in history, and 75 percent of substance abuse offenders have a history of mental illness.
- Alternative sentencing lets offenders remain in the community, where they can continue to work, take care of their loved ones and make a contribution to society.
- Outpatient drug rehab programs may benefit the offender’s family by allowing children to continue having regular contact with their parents.
