There are many Drug Rehab Facilities that accept criminal justice clients and people with open court cases. Some of the county and state courts will suggest treatment in first time offender cases. Other courts have a different view on treatment and make a person jump through so many hoops it is overwhelming to get treatment. In this case you need to get a lawyer or public defender to help you handle all the red tape that is in your way to getting help for addiction. Hopefully this will work and the person will get the help they need and into a court approved treatment center for addiction.
When a person is sent to prison for their drug addiction problems, this will more often than not, cause the addiction to progress and facilitate a heavier addiction, once the person re-enters the world. By locking up a person up and segregating them from society for a long period of time, it makes it even harder for them to re integrate back to their communities. Once you enter prison, you are immediately surrounded by negativity and that only breeds negativity. A person can pick up some bad habits in prison and often times, become more involved in criminal activity.
