Solitary confinement in prisons could be limited or abolished

Private prisons could be banned, limited, or have increased oversight

Needle exchange programs could be more widely available and legal

Multisystemic Therapy (MST) could help violent and chronic juvenile offenders

CEO's program could be an effective model to reduce recidivism

Incarceration could not be treated as "voluntary unemployment" to calculate child support arrears

Employment applications could not ask about criminal history to reduce recidivism

Drug policy and government funds could focus on providing treatment and prevention rather than punishment

Illegal drug users could be sent to treatment centers rather than prisons

Community-based alternatives to prison could be used to lower recidivism rates and prison populations
