Topic: A Broader View / Correctional staff - alcohol and/or drug addiction?

When an officer puts his/her career on the line for a small illegal gain, they are in effect giving their job away. Contraband no matter how small or insignificant is contraband, and a clever inmate will trap off an officer with psychological manipulation by holding that officer’s best intentioned favor against him/her. It is that simple. For our officers who have an addicition there are venues to get treatment. Yes it may cost money, but being free of an addicition is like getting one’s life back again. To use the phrase:“Priceless!.” Further inmates instinctively recognize someone who has an addiction and, again, will work it against the officer. Our agency has a program that understands the sensitivity of the officer’s situation and gets help for them since they asked for help.
