    program--I think it was at Donovan,a state prison in San Diego County.  My recollection is that the program was successful but their weren't enough slots for all the applicants.

      While we don't have faith based drug rehabs in my system (other that 12-Step Fellowships, if you can classify them that way), we do have very good drug rehab programs. I'll address them in some detail later in the series. But what you say is true, right now in my particular minimum security pre-release institution, general population of 1400, we can treat up to 60 at a time - this, with 75 to 80 percent there for some alcohol or drug related jackpot, and an active (ie, the inmates themselves requesting it) waiting list of about 350.
