Kiely says the new program will use proven methods, focusing on rehabilitation, "it is a daily interaction, we require them to get jobs, we require them to go to their treatment providers and they phase through it. It is a year program and then we get them through graduation. The whole key to the drug and veterans program is the structure."
Judge Wayne Trockman hopes the program will be just as successful as the Vanderburgh county's drug court, which is 27-percent more effective at preventing repeat offenses than any other alternative. In addition, it saves Indiana about 52-dollars for every individual it rehabilitates and keeps out of prison.
