Iowa, like many other states, has a program called drug court which is available to many drug offenders. It is intended to reduce recidivism of offenders who have committed crimes due to substance abuse problems. It has shown to accomplish this well as well as having many other benefits:
- Less harm to the drug offenders and their families,
- Huge savings in tax revenue compared to incarceration
- Increased the productivity of substance addicts
- and of course the main goal of reduced recidivism
Who is Eligible for Drug Court?
Drug offenders are the first to come to mid when talking about crimes caused by substance abuse, but they are not the only ones eligible, and not all drug offenders are eligible. Those eligible include:
- Offenders of selling drugs, but only if they were selling to support their habit and not if they were making a lot of money
- Offenders of drug possession
- Property crime offenders (theft, larceny, burglary etc), if they were committing the crime to support their substance abuse habit
