RSAT Reentry Challenges

Wednesday Aug 19, 2015 - 02:00pm to 03:00pm EDT
Event Description: 

This 2:00 p.m. ET webinar notes that research indicates that effective substance abuse treatment programs include an aftercare component. There is no single definition of aftercare, but common components include: relapse prevention and continued treatment and/or peer support, combined with other health and human services that promote a stable lifestyle. The evidence also suggests that aftercare is critical immediately after release from prison or jail, and that it is beneficial to concentrate resources during this period, when individuals are most likely to commit new crimes or to violate the conditions of their supervision. This webinar will present some early findings on the types of aftercare services funded by RSAT, from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) - funded Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) Study. The presentation will describe the sample of RSAT-funded aftercare programs and present preliminary data on program services, challenges, and innovations.
