With all of the gloom and depression in the news these days, it is easy to write off segments of our population, even here in 'Paradise."
That is often what we do subconsciously with those who have broken the law. Let the courts, law enforcement and jailers deal with them! Many times, however, these "write-offs" are otherwise good people who, due to addictions or mental and emotional disturbances, have simply made bad choices. For those people, there is hope, in the form of Community Corrections, with its new home at the Montrose Justice complex.
The program is highly successful and spectacularly beneficial to not only its clients but more importantly, to the community at large, our home. With a wide spectrum of services, those clients who qualify receive treatment, guidance and encouragement to return to useful and productive lives.
