Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

1.Yes it would be. An alternative to incarceration is any kind of punishment or treatment other than time in prison or jail that can be given to a person who is convicted of committing a crime. Alternatives can take the form ofrestorative justice, transformative justice, or the abolition of incarceration entirely.

2. With drug-related crimes on the rise, jails and prisons have quickly become over-populated. If you’ve committed a non-violent drug-related crime and face criminal charges, there’s a good chance a court may agree to drug rehabilitation in the place of serving jail time. As alcohol and drug addiction are now classified as diseases of the body, the legal system is more apt to lean towards rehabilitation rather than incarceration. This means you can request to be admitted to a drug rehabilitation program instead of serving time in jail.

3. someone with an out-of-control addiction


4. Effective drug treatment
