You are exactly right. This county is sorely lacking in rehab facilities. There are buildings that could be utilized to that end - the old Pine Street jail and the former armory/jail. But it appears no one in the powers that be want to address the issue. Gee, what a surprise!

although I believe these drug addicts should be taken off the streets, I don't believe that gives the sheriffs the right to violate our basic civil rights! what ever happened to probable cause? I noticed that they stop anyone walking down the street minding their own business any time they feel like it! who gives them that right? I know I don't!

The town needs more support for recovering drug addicts, in my expert opinion. The resources extend to two, maybe three, tops agencies that assist with rehabilitation. The options are slim, either jail, a month long wait through MMHC for rehab transportation, or the halfway home, Angel Manor, which has limited space. Sometimes, wanting something bad enough, in a place so low on options, isn't enough.

Looking at all of these arrests just shows what is wrong with our area. DRUGS. We as a community need to declare a war on drugs and demand that the judges require these people to get REAL treatment for their addictions. It is very sad that there are so many people addicted to meth in our community and the ages of some of those addicted are very young. These people don't stop when they are arrested because they are released right back out into our community to do the same thing again. We must make a difference in order to keep these drugs off our streets and to keep our children safe from becoming future addicts.
