Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
Pinal County probation: One of the stipulations that must be met, in order to complete, be released from probation is "the probationer must achieve and maintain sobriety, while on probation." More often than not a person who enters the realm of recovery will need some sort of behavioral therapy and substance abuse program to achieve this goal — either one of these services can make the journey to sobriety enjoyable, or a lot worse, depending on the "quality" of service the client receives, and usually "quality" services cost a lot of money, something that most people on probation don't have a lot of.
Doesn't Casa Grande's poor choices of low-income behavioral therapy and substance abuse services concern you? I am not, nor have I ever been, on probation (went to school to be a probation officer). I've worked adult/juvenile rehabs though and know chaos has no place in recovery, and it seems like that's all these places have to offer. Anxious to hear a response.
