We desperatedly need to reduce Crime in RSA. Substance Abuse Related Crime rose to the country's all time high crime by over 15%. Correctly implemented, monitored, and evaluated custom Drug Diversion Court Programmes for non-violent (except perhaps Domestic Violent Crime) should be dealt with through the successful international U.N. recommendations and highly valued US implemented Drug Courts operate with an outstanding drop in Recidivism (re-arrest rate drop) of over 80% in certain instances. Since RSA is the Crime Capital of the World we urge the State to introduce Theraputic long-term Drug Diversion programmes to avert presidential pardon every three years of which 75% of inmates are re-arrested within weeks and months. Criminal behaviour is a symptom of latter stage addiction and should be Treated and not Sentanced via the traditional Justice Syystem resulting in over crowded Prisons. And this excludes substance motivated and Substance induced crime which also need to be dealt with through such diversion programmes.

In order to have the state provide Substance Abuse Diversion programmes for the symptom of crime often associated with the progression of the disease of Addiction and which will necessitate Government and SAB Miller, Distell & KWV to provide for CSI based initiatives from these bodies and drug manufacturers to establish Equal Opportunity and Community Addiction Recovery Centres to assist the majority in our Country afflicted with the disease of Addiction.
