      Treatment 

Substance abuse counseling and treatment are the only way to break the vicious cycle of addiction.   It has been shown that treatment is significantly less expensive than incarceration.  The cost of the average prison stay of 25 months for one inmate equals $64,338 whereas treatment which includes the cost of residential, vocational training and support services is only $32,974. 

COMBAT dollars go to fund more than 30 different treatment agencies providing a total in 2009 of $2,919,315.  These different programs provide

  • COMBAT-funded programs provide comprehensive drug treatment services, detoxification, residential and outpatient services and continuing care services such as job training and transitional living programs.
