Intervening with Substance-Abusing Offenders: A Framework for Actionby Dianne Carter, Karen Fisher
Recommends approaches to planning, implementing, & managing correctional substance abuse programs. Several themes are highlighted: there are effective treatment programs for offenders which counter the nothing works beliefs; security & treatment should co-exist & complement each other: there is a need for careful assessment & proper placement of offenders in the most helpful programs; systematic approaches & linkages should be established to provide a continuum of info. & services; & a variety of accountability & evaluation procedures & criteria should be used to measure the success of programs.
