Thank you for correcting the spelling of my name [“Will 'SAFE-P' and TDCJ Be Held Accountable?
” News, July 18]. I want the people of Texas to understand the importance of the Substance Abuse Felony Punishment Facilities. They are to give felons with addiction problems a chance to become productive members of society. While in SAFPF, you are paying your debt back to society while learning how to live a clean and sober productive lifestyle. Without my having gone to SAFPF, I believe that I would be in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for years, just doing time and costing taxpayers more money. Now I am able to contribute tax dollars instead of using them to be housed in TDCJ just doing time. Once again, this program saved my life and the lives of many others. I say thank you to the state of Texas for taking a chance on me and many others! We will not let you down!
