ADVOCACY

Greenhope advocates a more humane and effective drug policy which does not posit incarceration as the sole solution to the medical, emotional, social and economic problems facing women addicted to drugs. A 1997 RAND Drug Policy Research Center Study concluded that drug treatment reduces 15 times more drug related crime than mandatory minimum sentences.

Greenhope is committed to the creation of intelligent and compassionate drug policy reform that gives credence to the transformative power of rehabilitation and honors the resilience of the human spirit. Women who have an addiction problem need treatment, not incarceration, so that they can move on to lead productive, fruitful lives and become nurturing and effective parents to their children.
