277. Daytop Village

If drug users are accepting that they have an addiction and the treatment program respects their boundaries the treatment program can have good long term effect but if they use a privilege based program with ro rights unless certain progress is made, the long-term effect can be as worse as a prolonged drug-abuse.

A number of clients will try to escape. People in the local community could be hurt or robbed.

Based on police reports about runaways from this program it is safe to say that Daytop Village is not a safe place to be. Hopefully the economy will close them totally in the end.
