I work in corrections, 97% of them ARE coming back to your communities and with that mind set, failure is high. They have served their time.Prison is expensive.Jobs, aftercare, is what it takes to keep them out of prison.
Along with a real desire by (the individual) to become a law abiding citizen. Committing crimes like most things in life are a choice a person makes.
They have to live somewhere so people need to make the best of it, and do what they can to help their re-entry go as good as possible.
Just to give you the gist of what I'm on about, if you haven't already seen this stuff..It would be good to show it to your "customers". :-)
You have the right idea. I have worked in a treatment based Prison for16 +yrs. I also worked where there was no treatment just Prison. We have a 6 month and 1 year program. 1 years is good, however research shows 2 years is the best.
