Re: “Despite New Law, Vermont Inmates Denied Addiction Treatment

While there is a law that permits inmates to receive drug treatment while incarcerated, it is a program that is ripe with abuse.

There are inmates who have signed up for the program because they can get their drugs for free from the state instead of paying for it in population from other inmates. Multiple inmates have flat out admitted to corrections officers that they did not want to get clean, but just wanted to get high for free.

There have been a high amount of inmates caught attempting to divert their new medications in order to sell it to other inmates in population. At least 3 or 4 inmates per week are caught trying to bring their medications back down into population.

If the state really wanted to make this program work, they would go to a medication that is delivered like insulin - via syringe. This would prevent diversion of medications.

As for the girlfriend who claims that she has been paying a corrections officer to deliver drugs into prison, she is more than likely earning money for her boyfriend. Almost all drugs smuggled into prisons are used for profit, not for self-medicating. She is a dealer and the CO is a mule.
