Research shows that court-monitored drug abuse treatment programs can help prevent offenders from committing new crimes. The success of the strategy however, requires much effort on the part of everyone involved in the criminal justice system (police, prosecutors, defense attorneys, probation officers and judges) to enforce the rules and respond to violations quickly and consistently.


Terrence Walton, chief operating officer of the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP), reports that of the nearly 2.5 million people incarcerated in America about half of them are in jail because of drug use and addiction. “There are more than 3,000 drug courts across the nation to help those with sub-stance-abuse disorders get and stay on the right side of the law,” said Walton during a recent inter- view with The Kentucky Network to Transform Teaching.

This is a very strong article, it took my breath away, because I haven't read anything like this for a long time, so my respect to the author for writing such strong articles. In general, in our world today, technology is indispensable, and it is not surprising that it is so actively used in the fight against drugs. There are various applications that help us in this life, for example, to learn a language https://edureviewer.com/spanish-learning-apps-for-adults/ or to learn the rules of the road, there are already applications for every taste, to solve any problem, and this is very cool in my opinion. Because if you remember what happened, for example, 30 years ago, it's better not to remember at all.
