Drug Abuse Costing Florida Taxpayers $300 Million
Date:8/22/2013

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) August 22, 2013

The Florida Department of Corrections reported that the state's taxpayers are paying out about $300 million a year to house people incarcerated for drug offenses, as reported by the Bradenton Herald (8/19) in their news article titled, Push for leniency in drug sentencing has been a hard sell in Florida.

Drug abuse in Florida is best addressed by certified detox centers who are trained to best handle the abusers on a case by case basis. It is only through the professional help administered at these facilities that we can lower the instances of drug abuse.

A 24/7 medically supervised detox center, Harbor Village provides clients with a professional team who is trained specifically to deal with the many types of abuse.

At Harbor Village, clients with drug and alcohol issues can begin a proven step-by-step program to help them eliminate their addiction. Each client receives private drug treatment in a luxury, state-of-the art environment where they are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, 30,000 square feet of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the personalized support of everyone at the facility.

According to Push for leniency in drug sentencing has been a hard sell in Florida, the cost of incarcerating a drug offender for a mandatory three-year prison sentence in Florida is estimated at $58,400, while the cost of treatment in a work release program is $19,130, based on an analysis by the Florida Office of Program and Policy Analysis and Government Accountability.

Anyone completing a drug abuse or work release program has a greater likelihood of achieving future success at their next job and sustaining a clean criminal record. However, the data shows, three in five drug offenders return on a drug offense.

“Harbor Village invites people from all states to experience detoxification in our upscale facility. If you have an addiction to drugs or alcohol, we want to help you,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
