Reentry Programs and Ex-offender Recovery Resources
Research shows that the best way to promote successful reentry and reduce recidivism among ex-offenders leaving the correctional system is to provide comprehensive, community-based reentry supports. [SOURCE]
CARE’s Offender Success and MISSION programs initiate support and treatment as early as possible (often while an individual is still incarcerated).These reentry assistance services include housing support, employment support and job training, drug abuse treatment programs (as needed), mental health services, referrals to vocational opportunities, and more. Supports and services continue long after release, in order to assure the best possible outcomes for the individual and community.
"Offender Success," MISSION, and other Re-Entry Programs
CARE of Southeastern Michigan provides professional and emotional support to those seeking to change their lives.To that end, we partner with the Michigan Department of Corrections to provide a variety of classes and other reentry services. These are aimed at encouraging successful transition by helping former inmates learn skills, reduce criminal thinking, and increase pro-social behaviors. Specific classes include Adult Anger Management, Nurturing Parenting classes, and others.
According to the National Institutes of Health “The substantial prison population in the United States is attributable in large part to drug-related offenses and is accompanied by high rates of recidivism. … It is a matter of public health and safety to make drug abuse treatment a key component of the criminal justice system.” CARE’s MISSION program is an intensive, evidence-based intervention specifically for criminal-justice involved individuals struggling with substance use and abuse. Our Offender Success programs (which are part of a statewide initiative coordinated by the Michigan Department of Corrections) provide comprehensive support to anyone leaving the criminal justice system.
