Chapter 11 in the textbook, “Rehabilitation, Treatment, and Job Training,” contains discussion of the treatment of drug abuse and dependence, inclusive of
treatment programs inside of prisons and treatment programs outside of prisons (see section titled “Treatment”). The federal report Drug Use, Dependence,
and Abuse Among State Prisoners and Jail Inmates, 2007-2009 focuses on drug abuse and dependence among incarcerated criminals.
Write an essay which briefly summarizes (i) the treatment of persons suffering from drug abuse or dependence, (ii) the problem of drug abuse and
dependence among incarcerated persons, and (iii) YOUR VIEWS on whether persons who abuse or are dependent on drugs should be incarcerated or treated
in a community setting (i.e., put on probation which mandates drug treatment and testing, or put in a drug rehabilitation facility)
