The burden on criminal justice systems which has accompanied the increased use of narcotic and other dangerous drugs in our society has forced responsible members from both law enforcement agencies and the medical community to join together in developing new programs within the criminal justice structure to deal with the drug phenomenon. In this article, the authors discuss some of these varied program alternatives and suggest additions which can be utilized to reduce both the criminal activity and the drug-abusing habits of persons who come in contact with criminal justice systems.
