What are the pros and cons of rehabilitation vs incarceration?

There are pros and cons to each of these addiction treatment locations. They can get the help they need in the community through a treatment program, or they can go to prison or jail, where treatment should be provided. Understanding differences and similarities is useful for families in this situation. Another reason rehabilitation is a more effective alternative is the difficulty of finding suitable employment after release.

Criminal records deter many employers from offering someone a job. Giving first-time offenders the option of attending treatment rather than spending time in jail is best reflected in their record. They are more likely to find employment after leaving a treatment center rather than an institution such as jail or prison. Incarceration saves society a lot of money, it also saves the individual money.

A substance use disorder is expensive to maintain; it can lead to expenses caused by addiction.
