Prison does not work for most individuals suffering from drug addiction. Most people who need drug treatment that are incarcerated usually will meet new drug contacts and learn new criminal behaviors that support, rather than deter, their drug addiction.
According to Debbie Ross executive director of Narconon Gulf Coast, a world-class residential drug treatment facility, “People with drug addiction problems need help, not jail.” Unfortunately, many who have unsuccessfully attended other drug treatment programs will sometimes lose hope. The families of the drug addicted person, along with judges and prosecutors will start to believe that jail must be the only answer.
The administration and staff at Narconon Gulf Coast understand that most people suffering from drug addiction do not agree with and will not accept the disease concept of most drug treatment programs. The addict’s lack of agreement does not suggest that they can’t get well. It does indicate that there may be a different and better way. Narconon Gulf Coast understands and has proven hundreds of times that people have the power to overcome drug addiction. Narconon Gulf Coast’s 90 percent success rate means that there is hope and a solution for those suffering from drug addiction.
