Treatment, not Punishment


Abstract:
Supporters of criminal justice reform are tentatively encouraged by Governor Pat McCrory's annual budget. If his budget is approved, $7.2 million would be allocated to re-opening and funding drug treatment facilities and close five state prisons. Drug treatment centers aim to rehabilitate convicted drug abusers and prepare those convicted to reenter society by offering counseling, GED courses, and job training.
