Specific action by Washington state (relies more on rehabilitation than on lockdown), Colorado (stopped long-term solitary confinement for the mentally ill—Massachusetts limited it), and New York state (overhauled the way solitary confinement in administered) should be noted in the answer. As to what could be done instead, the answer should refer to Great Britain where authorities adopted a strategy that focused less on the use of solitary confinement and more on preventing prison violence by, for example, having small housing units with fewer than 10 people and providing opportunities for work, education, and mental health treatment.
