Reformatories seldom reform, and penitentiary seldom produce penitence, but groom criminals to re-offend. For certain offenders, treatment courts achieve impressive results and save lots of money, bringing bi-partisan support. We visit with the supervisor of Eau Claire's Treatment Courts program, Melissa Ives, and participants of the local Drug, Mental Health, and AIM (Alternatives to the Incarceration of Mothers) Courts - Mike Gumulauskas, Rob Bergeron, and Rachael Shramek. Part 1 of 2, with Melissa & Rachael.
