There are rear drum brakes on the 2000-2003 neons. You will need brake spring tool to change the drum pads. Haynes repair manual, Dodge Neon 2000 thru 2003. Book #30036 This book can answer almost any question and is a must if you work on your own car. Plus it's only $20

Are you sure that your 2001 Neon has Drum brakes? I have a 95 Neon that has 4 wheel Disc brakes meaning that there are no Drum brakes on a Neon.Just look around your rear wheels and see whether they are drum or disc,I believe there is discs on all four wheels on a Neon.

Why drum brake is preferred for vehicle?

Disc brakes are actually preferred on vehicles because they cool more quickly then drum brakes, which allows them to be more effective at braking.

If the brakes are disc brakes then try opening the bleed screws on the calipers and see if the pressure releases if not then remove the calipers and replace because the piston is probably frozen or you can try pushing in the piston with a c-clamp,if that doesnt work replace the calipers as noted. If the brakes are drum brakes then check your brake cylinders to see if they are leaking if so you can usually rebuild them if not then replace them and bleed your brake system to get brakes back to normal, you can also make sure your drum brakes are adjusted correctly.
