Some Reasons why Drug Abuse and Drug Addiction in New York have decreased in Recent Times

May 30, 2008

Though the problems of drug abuse and drug addiction in New York have definitely not gone away in today’s times, but they have definitely been reduced significantly. A very important reason for this is the very commendable task carried out by the drug courts of this area. Before the drug courts were enforced, people who were caught with drug related crimes within the state were simply sent to prison. They would get released from their sentences and then revert to addiction and probably a life of crime. But the drug courts have now made it almost compulsory for people committing drug related crimes to seek some sort of drug addiction treatment in New York. Among other things, this has helped reduce the incidence of drug related crime within the state.

The Drug Enforcement Agency of the state launched its Mobile Enforcement Teams program in 1995. This program was designed to lower the amount of drug related crimes within the nation. As of today, there have been twenty three deployments by the MET in the state. These have been in Albany, Amsterdam, Fallsburg, Geneva, Hempstead, Jefferson County, two in Kingston, Liberty, Middletown, Monticello, two in Mount Vernon Newburgh, Niagara Falls, Poughkeepsie, Schenectady, Southampton, Spring Valley, Troy, Utica, Watertown and Yonkers.

Considering that these people are enforced into getting treatment for their conditions, it is easy to understand why the drug courts have helped greatly in reducing the prevalence of substance abuse in New York. The program is still undergoing a lot of modifications and improvements so that it can be kept up with newer methods and therapies for coping with drug addiction treatment.
