Assessing the Relationship between Treatment Programs and Prisoner Misconduct
Savanna Buttelwerth, Hanna Pappas
The criminal justice system has been utilizing prison systems to manage behaviors that are undesirable to society for centuries. More recently, the criminal justice system has implemented programs within prisons to assist in treating prisoners and their specific behavioral issues. In this project we look at rehabilitative prison programs that parallel to infraction rates among prisoners. Correctional programming, mental health programming and miscellaneous programs are all examined in the literature review to find the gap of how these programs effect inmate infractions. More specifically this research examines drug and alcohol treatment programs and it's relationship with drug and alcohol related write-ups.
