15 According to The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) 2010 report Behind Bars II: Substance Abuse and America's Prison Population Substance abuse and crime are inextricably linked.
16 According to this study, 65% of the estimated 2.3 million inmates meet the DSM* IV medical criteria for substance abuse or addiction. *(Diagnostic & Statistic Manual)
17 DSM IV = Need for Treatment Polk County Inmates 2012 = 32, % of this number = 21,087 in need of treatment
18 Why JASA? The report further indicted, If all inmates who needed treatment and aftercare received such services, the nation would break even in a year. As compared to non-substance involved inmates, prisoners with substance abuse problems were: i. More likely to be re-incarcerated; ii. likely to begin their criminal careers earlier and iii.have more contacts with the criminal justice system.
19 Why JASA? The study further found that alcohol and drugs are significant factors in the commission of many crimes.
20 Why JASA? Alcohol and drugs are involved in the following: 78% of violent crimes 83% of property crimes 77% of weapon offenses and 77% of probation or parole violations.
21 Susan E. Foster, CASA's Vice President, is quoted as stating, "We do not as a nation refuse to provide treatment for other chronic ailments like heart disease or diabetes.
22 We should do so for addictive disorders, especially when the added benefits of treatment for offenders include significant reductions in crime and its costs to society."
23 Per Polk County Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) The following statistics demonstrate a need for additional treatment for inmates. From 2000 through 2011, Polk County experienced a 21.45% increase in its average daily jail population. From 2000 to 2011, the jail bookings increased 13.46%. In 2012, Polk County received 32,443 inmate bookings through its jail doors. The average daily inmate population in 2011 was 2,109 inmates. However, for the first three months of 2012 that average increased to 2,264. 4
24 Recidivism Rates As of December 31 st, 2010, of inmates completing the program, 83% have not been rearrested in Polk County within one year.

28 Why JASA?
29 Treatment Works for Those Entering JASA Due to sentence time limitations, 607 inmates were not in treatment long enough to formally complete the 84-day program. However, a random sampling of these inmates shows that treatment is beneficial in lowering recidivism rates.
