New program for drug crime convicted felons


Opioid overdoses are more dangerous in Chicago than gun violence. In Cook County, a new court-ordered program called Sheriff's Opioid Addiction Recovery Program, known as SOAR, will help their never-ending cycle end for good. Most inmates that have drug-related charges and/or convictions go in and out of the system for years because there is seldom any follow up after they get clean while incarcerated. The Sherrif's office hopes that this program will actually save taxpayers money because it will keep inmates out of jail for good.
