Alternative to Incarceration

 
Drug Treatment Courts in the Americas (DTC)
Treatment alternatives to incarceration for drug-dependent offenders involve diverting substance-abusing offenders from prison and jail into treatment and rehabilitation under judicial supervision. By increasing direct supervision of offenders, coordinating public resources, and expediting case processing, treatment alternatives to incarceration can help break the cycle of criminal behavior, alcohol and drug use, and imprisonment.
Closing the Gap
This project seeks to address the increasing economic and social pressures associated with high rates of incarceration for drug-related offenders, offering alternatives to avoid making the judicial system, including prisons, a revolving door that perpetuates crime, exclusion, and drug abuse.
Updating and improving legal frameworks on drugs – Legislation on Drugs in the Americas (LEDA)
According to the Plan of Action of the Hemispheric Drug Strategy (2010), the Executive Secretariat is mandated to publish and maintain member states’ legal norms relating to drugs. This up to date compilation of legislation on drugs throughout the hemisphere fulfills this mandate.
