dc.description.abstractThe United States is facing one of its worst opioid epidemics in its history. From street heroin to prescription drugs, many Americans are addicted to opiates. There are two common ways for attacking illicit drug use: 1) incarceration and 2) substance abuse treatment. This SIP sets to find which of the two has the better impact both economically and personally on those affected by drug abuse. This answer is found by looking at various policies implemented by countries, interviews with drug users, and a cost-benefit analysis.en_US
