Offender Drug Abuse and Recidivism
An Access to Recovery ProgrameBook - 2010
Seredycz tracks 434 offenders of a federally funded Access to Recovery (ATR) program coordinated by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and a jurisdiction identified as Lake City. He examines offenderOCOs reduction of alcohol and other drug abuse (AODA), recidivism and barriers to reintegration. Self-reported high-risk drug offenders had a higher likelihood of program failure and criminal activity. Offenders who voluntarily remained in treatment were more successful remaining abstinent and more likely to desist from criminal activity. Faith-based programming was not found to be an effective predictor in increasing treatment outcomes nor, reducing an offenderOCOs likelihood of recidivism. Case managers play a significant role in determining an offenderOCOs success in AODA treatment and likelihood of being incarcerated."
