I’m a former prisoner. I watched as the state of Wisconsin used Segregation, deemed torture by the United Nations, as a response to inmates who had addiction issues. 

Responding to addiction, often caused by trauma, with punishment, isolation, and torture only furthers the traumas of addiction. 

We need to stop the use of drug testing within Corrections facilities. This would save a lot of money yearly, which could be spent on treatment resources and actual care. 

We must also stop using segregation in response to dirty urine analysis tests. As stated above, by doing this, we only further the traumas which lead to use in the first place.
