no help available from mental health or mental hospital for son /addict
judicial system should offer choice to patient. jail or treatment for addiction.  Funds should be made available  due to excess funds as per the media last week.Talk is that that money will be given back to the taxpayers.  The jails are full of mentally ill: some with addictions.  They are released under their own recognizance even with unpaid bond as in the case of my son to be turned back to the street to continue with his drug abuse.

Welcome to our new site focusing attention on the growing need to catch mentally ill /addicts from falling through the cracks.

This new organization, Itsnotmyproblem.org, is dedicating itself to bring attention to the rising problem of our justice system plugging up with cases evolved around mental illness and addiction. A new mental health court is starting up to handle some of these cases. However resources to treat them are diminishing. We look forward to providing a place for family, friends, social workers, mental health workers, civil workers, and judicial entities to network together to provide some possible answers to these problems.
We will start with several categories. 

Family Resources
What's New
Misc.

We welcome your input. And will be making many changes to this site.

Thank You
Paul Millick
Founder
