Helping those who need help

Here is an interesting and proactive idea from the state of Illinois on dealing with and helping prisoners with drug problems.

Obviously, the current means of dealing with drug inmates isn't working. Prison isn't 'reforming' the inmates, who most of the time just end up back in prison. Any new attempt to help reform and turn inmates into positive and productive citizens is worth the chance. Too often we, as a society, give up on prisoners too soon, and they often aren't given second chances. Hopefully this new idea and program will not only create productive and healthy citizens, but also make us all aware of the situation and give them the second chance to make something of themselves.
