I concur. Furthermore, if we spent just 1/5th of the money it takes to imprison an addicted society and use it to educate and council we'd have less people getting hooked and even less people re-entering rehabilitation.

As it stands, most programs that help are horribly funded by the government or funded by public donation. Needless to say, most programs suffer due to this.

As an example, hospitals could offer ward dedicated to helping and rehabilitating on a more personal basis. The dollar-for-dollar effect would be better health care all around as those people would be sharing facilities with the general public, rather than having a separate institution within the prison (fractional health care services).
