With the National Association of Drug Court Professionals reporting that 95 percent of all drug abusers released from prison ultimately return to drug abuse, you may wonder what, if anything, is being done to help curb the problem.

White collar crimes are motivated by financial gain, and do not typically involve violence, or even the threat of it.
