National Drug Policy Reform

President Barack Obama has a new plan to fight the war on drugs. He feels that the to win the battle we need to have a greater emphasis on using public health tools to battle addiction by sending non-violent drug offenders into treatment instead of prisons. The new measures will be outlined by the National Drug Czar soon.

Under the new policy, millions will eligible for treatment for substance abuse in less that a year. The reform will also include changes to the criminal justice system. The plan is to include drug courts and probation programs aimed at reducing incarceration rates. There will also be a community-based element designed to stop the endless cycle of drug abuse, crime and trips to prison. The policy will allow police resources to attack other important issues. There is a strong consensus that incarcerating addicts is not the answer.

Drug and alcoholism treatment can truly turn your life around, especially if the treatment is internationally recognized and individualized to you as a unique person. Stop the cycle of drug abuse in your life and seek treatment. Call Seabrook today at 1.(888) 223-0298 to learn more about recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.
