I came across this site by accident.. 'Literally' - from mis-spelling a url!
.. Question is, why is this lie perpertrated, and who is benefiting from such a lie?

Los Angels County, California


The in-custody drug treatment and drug abuse resistance education programmes in the Los Angeles County Jail provide a programme bridge to the 11 adult drug courts currently in operation.

A drug court module for men is set aside at the Century Regional Detention Facility, completely with space for meetings, acupuncture, and counselling. This module is isolated from the general population of the jail. A similar, separate facility for women inmates exists in a different facility. A private, licensed drug treatment provider operates the in-custody drug treatment programme.


The most recently implemented drug court in Los Angeles County is the Sentenced Offender Drug Court. It requires completion of a mandatory 90 –day, jail based treatment programme phase (Impact Programme), in addition to any previous period of incarceration served as a condition of the initial grant of probation. The target population for this programmes includes probationers with severe drug addiction and repeated criminal justice system involvement. The purpose of the in-custody component is to accommodate incarcerate sentences as well as to provide the first three months of treatment in a secure environment. Unique to this in-custody programme is that transitional housing is made available to appropriate participants who do not have safe and sober living accommodations in the community.

A preliminary cost benefits analysis of the programme showed to the savings to the country through utilisation of the in-custody treatment programme.

Actually I took part in this program. I was being housed at Biscaluiz mens facility. They had one barrack set aside for women. It was a very good program but it did not last long due to funding.
