Will your treatment center increase crime in our community? | Opioid Addiction Treatment Services

The presence of an Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) is statistically linked with exactly the reverse – i.e., reduced community criminal activity – and decreases in criminal behavior are greater the longer patients are in treatment. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) Drug Abuse Treatment Outcome Study found that drug-offense arrests decline because OTP patients reduce or stop buying and using illegal drugs. Arrests for predatory crimes decline because OTP patients no longer need to finance a costly illicit drug addiction and because treatment allows many patients to stabilize their lives and obtain employment. We see this success story played out time and again with our own patients.
