Treatment Beyond Bars
This week, Cathy Cassata told the story of Tonier Cain, aaddicted homeless prostitute who turned her life around. Readers expressed gratitude to the too-few programs that helped people like Cain:
This is such a strong profile about affecting real change in the lives of the traumatized and addicted who are in prison. The more I learn about early childhood trauma and its connection to both addiction and incarceration, it's clear that programs such as the one Tonier Cain participated in are the answer, not building more prisons.
