Jail Inmates Have Mental Health and Drug Issues
A large number of jail inmates have mental health and drug or substance abuse issues. This survey confirms conclusions previously suspected that there are unfilled needs for mental health services and drug-abuse treatment connected with crime. Criminal process can assess responsibility for crimes and punish offenders. However, personal reform is also a goal of the criminal justice system, and when mental health and drug abuse issues occur, the proper response may be treatment rather than punishment. With nearly two-thirds reporting drug abuse, the policy of the County criminal justice system is to approach mental health and drug abuse as treatable diseases.

Your Rehab Experience Should Be Private
Admitting that you have an addiction problem is the first step toward recovery and lifelong sobriety, but it can be a difficult one to make. Your next step will be choosing a rehab center that is right for you. Attending drug or alcohol rehabilitation is a highly private situation that should be treated with the utmost confidentiality.
Those who are particularly worried about how confidential and private their treatment program will be may want to consider traveling out of town in order to seek treatment. In many cases, you might not need to travel very far to find a secluded enough location where you feel comfortable addressing your addiction problem.
