Lake Worth, FL (PRWEB) September 15, 2014
The White House has recently begun shifting its drug policy away from putting low-level offenders in jail and prison and toward helping them access addiction treatment. Millennium Treatment Group sees this shift as a positive change.
The nation is currently grappling with fresh waves of prescription drug and heroin abuse. According to an article from The Washington Post, members of both parties are calling for a shift away from using the criminal justice system to address the drug problem and toward a public health-based approach to drug addiction.
The spike in drug overdoses isn’t dropping, and public opinion has increasingly tilted toward providing treatment to people with addiction issues.
The treatment-oriented strategy taking root nationwide is also reflected in the way that law enforcement is handling overdose cases. The Washington Post reports that dozens of states have modified their drug laws to include so-called "Good Samaritan" laws, which give legal immunity to people who call 911 when a person is overdosing on drugs.
Millennium Treatment Group offers drug and alcohol addiction treatment for those who need it. They hope that the recent shift in policy will allow more people to seek the help that they need. If you or someone you know is in need of treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, contact Millennium Treatment Group at 1-855-522-1994.
