Are those allowed out of prison while in treatment for addiction or alcoholism under California proposition 36 considered to be on parole?
If you have been arrested in California for simple drug possession or being under the influence, if you are on probation for possession or being under the influence, or if you have violated your parole (for a non-violent, non-felony crime) you may be eligible for drug treatment through Proposition 36. Prop 36 serves to divert many parolees who commit non-violent, drug-related violations into supervised treatment programs instead of returning them to prison. A parolee who violates parole and qualifies for treatment would still be considered on parole until the treatment was completed, along with the other conditions of parole.
