My daughter spent 6 months in the county jail. 6 months in rehab. Got out and relapsed while under probation officer, community service, counseling and recovery. 2 of her friends in rehab overdosed and died when they got out because they think they can do the same dosage of drugs they did months later when they went in. We need a facility for drug addicts only. Jail is not for the beginning of their struggle. She is headed to prison but I pray some other people can learn from these programs. And the worst thing is families bad mouthing addicts they are in denial if they think it can't happen to their loved ones.
It's a heartbreaking and complicated problem. Our communities certainly need resources. We also need love and understanding.
