What is Jail Diversion and why is it the best option?

Jail Diversion Statistics

Jail Diversion, or Drug Diversion, is an alternative sentencing option for people who have been charged with a drug offense. This means instead of spending time in jail the offender would be mandated to attend an addiction treatment facility. Here they would follow the requirements and terms made by the judge who presided over their case. Broadway’s Drug Diversion program is far more effective then incarceration for many different reasons; the two biggest being less strain on the nation’s economic resources and allowing addicted individuals to get the treatment they need. The U.S. government has started to view drug and alcohol addiction differently in the last decade. Traditionally our nation took a “war on drugs” approach when it came to addiction. This viewpoint painted people who suffered from addiction as criminals. Recently the nation’s outlook on addiction has changed and we understand that addiction is a disease that people suffer from.

Drug diversion is a program in which an alternative sentence is given in lieu of an offender serving jail time. This program is designed specific to those offenders with drug or alcohol related offenses with a non-violent nature. Many times eligibility for a Drug Diversion program is determined by the judge. Clients will often times request an alternative sentence for their crimes so they can seek help for their addiction and treat the root of the problem. The drug court judge will make the final decision based on the facts of the case and the offender’s circumstances. Those who qualify are mandated to attend an addiction treatment center for a designated amount of time as an alternative to serving time in jail. Broadway Treatment Center is able to accept drug diversion clients from all over the nation.
