The impact of alcohol abuse and addiction on our society has been extensively researched for decades. Because alcohol has been found to be a contributing factor in a high percentage of crimes, especially violent ones, it has been an ongoing issue of public policy concern.
In recent years, there has been a paradigm shift in the criminal justice system when it comes to alcohol abuse and crime. Incarceration has proven to be highly ineffective in addressing the root cause of addictive behavior, and most offenders getting out of jail were going right back to reoffending because they didn’t change the underlying behavior. Treatment, combined with intensive monitoring, has now emerged as a more effective method that is producing better outcomes and facilitating long-term behavioral change.
