Rehab help for county inmates
Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton is hopeful a partnership with WestCare Foundation can keep his jail population down and help inmates get on the right track.
WestCare provides assistance to people with substance abuse and mental health issues. The organization is supposed to be opening a facility in Harriman in 2015.
“Hopefully, WestCare will be a part of our in-house jail treatment program,” Stockton said.
The jail has been dealing with overcrowding issues over the years. Stockton said crimes committed to support a drug habit is one of the reasons behind the problem.
“People that have been sentenced to six months or more in the jail, we’re hoping to get WestCare inside the jail to get those people a jumpstart on treatment,” Stockton said. “Hopefully, that way when they get out, they got other means of surviving besides crime.”
Drug Addiction Treatment, Detox and Rehab, at Effective Drug Detox Center in Florida
Drug addiction is a very prevalent problem in the U.S. It is estimated that, at any given time, about 23 million people suffer from addiction to substances such as alcohol, cocaine, heroin, meth, and others. If 23 million was a shocking number, you will be even more surprised by knowing that only 15% of all these addicts receive any kind of treatment for their addiction. Not seeking treatment for addiction can be linked to denial, lack of financial affordability and location constraints. This is very unfortunate as drug addiction is very receptive to treatment, with patients having a fantastic chance at recovery if only they followed a good treatment program.
