Texas Saves $443 Million Establishing Treatment Programs for Drug Addicts as Opposed to Jailing Them
(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 17, 2015 ) Dallas, TX -- As reported by Nepr on April 8th, Texas has saved $443 million implementing drug addiction treatment to victims of substance use disorders, as opposed to incarcerating non violent offenders. Approximately half of the funds salvaged were used to construct community addiction treatment programs. Texas has moved from "prohibition" to treatment in their social policies- providing actionable treatment programs, saving the state time and money. Massachusetts is turning to Texas as an example to combat their own opiate Addiction Detox in DallasDallas Drug and Alcohol Detox epidemic and may reevaluate their public policies regarding drug offences.
The change in policy, where treatment is favored over incarceration as a means to reduce criminal related charges to the state while also providing effective means of redressing social problems, is termed "Justice Reinvestment." Current states under varying justice reinvestment policies include: WA, ID, NE, KS. MI, AL, NC, WV, and PA.
Justice reinvestment reduces recidivism, aims to reduce state and local costs, and seeks to safeguard the public from dangers unaddressed by traditional means of incarceration. New policies focus on reducing the number of arrests made.
Drug Rehab Dallas is a Drug and alcohol rehab center located in the hub of Dallas. The drug detox and rehabilitation facility offers addiction treatment services to those with untreated substance use disorders. The facility's directors support Texas' multi-million dollar saving justice reinvestment policies and recommend other states adopt similar policies. A medical associate comments, "It just makes sense. Imprisonment isn't helping, the only thing that can help someone suffering from addiction is treatment- and inmates just don't have access to treatment while incarcerated. It's not a pretty truth, but it's one we must face if we truly want the varied drug epidemics to stop. The problem is addiction is so stigmatized the public doesn't recognize addiction as a physical and mental disease- which makes it difficult for legislation to rally votes from the public."

Drug Rehab Dallas personalizes addiction treatment plans for each patient based off their genetic history of abuse, domestic environment, and potential for relapse.
