Sounds pretty inefficient. Maybe private prisons could do a more economical job.

No reply to that necessary as I am just baiting you. But many people would say that cost is well worth it. We should be spending that much to rehabilitate them (Yes, I know Red thinks that's a bullshit word...) because that is worth the investment. These facilities that are "helping" junkies may cost a lot less, but are they really solving a problem? I don't consider the "Well, they're going to kill themselves anyway, let's help them!" approach to be in our society's best interest.
