Drug-related arrests, convictions, and incarcerations continue to increase each year. The criminal justice system faces the problem of how to handle these high numbers of people with substance abuse and addiction issues flooding the system. As the opioid epidemic unfolds, correctional institutions are looking for best practices that they can use to help handle the ever growing demand for substance abuse and addiction treatment.
This page of drug-related resources has been assembled to assist correctional organizations with the latest insights and best practices taking place in the field.
