There have always been institutions and individuals who look to profit from the suffering of others. Today is no different. In a new essay for Politico, I warn about the Treatment Industrial Complex, a growing network of facilities and companies who are capitalizing on the movement away from incarceration and towards treatment and rehabilitation. Their success depends not on being effective, but in keeping as many people as possible under supervision for as long as possible. The lengthier, deeper and more expansive the treatment, the greater the profit. I co-authored this essay with Cate Graziani from Grassroots Leadership.
