A growing number of courts are sending those accused of drug offenses and nonviolent crimes to addiction treatment rather than jail, but some residents are now claiming that the only treatment being offered at those facilities is forced, unpaid labor at for-profit businesses. Joining us to discuss this little-known side of the justice system is Jack Karp, who wrote a deep-dive about the practice and the growing litigation challenging it.
