Hostels For Ex Offenders - From Sheila

Hi. Well I for one would like to give the person with the media enquiry some insight in to hostels.
My son spent months on a TC Unit in prison and worked hard to battle his drug addiction. I was hoping he could be released at my address where I could support him. But no, the probation service decided a hostel would be more beneficial and what a joke that turned out to be. Other ex offenders stayed in the hostel and were drug using and drinking all night. Staff were present of a day time but clocked off after tea time leaving the hostel as a doss house for all and sundry. Hostels are a waste of time and I am pretty sure that the Government set people up to fail time over. Rubbish!!!!!!!! Regards Sheila.
