Georgia’s new governor also made a statement, indicating that he is placing emphasis upon moving drug offenders to proven Georgia drug abuse rehab programs rather than putting them through the revolving door of the Georgia prison system.
While Georgia drug abuse rehab programs have helped many drug abusers, most Georgia drug abusers who are criminal offenders, currently end up incarcerated. Georgia officials have now reached the consensus that prisons are no replacement for effective drug rehabilitation. With this new policy change, hopefully the state of Georgia will not only save millions of dollars but more importantly save some lives.
Many non-violent drug offenders will be ordered to Georgia drug abuse rehab programs because of these new policies.
