Annotation: This Biannual Grantee Feedback Report for April-September 2015 presents data from grantee reports on their performance under the Family-Based Prisoner Substance Use Disorder Treatment Program, which is funded under the Second Chance Act (SCA) of 2007, which was enacted to break the cycle of recidivism by focusing Federal funding and technical assistance on programs and services intended to prepare those released from prisons and jails to live productive and law-abiding lives.
Abstract: First funded in 2010, the SCA Family-Based Substance Abuse Treatment Grant Program supports State and local government agencies and federally recognized Indian tribes in establishing or improving residential substance abuse treatment programs in correctional facilities that include recovery and family supportive services. In the previous reporting period (April - September 2014), 917 new (480 pre-release and 437 post-release) participants were enrolled, but this number declined to 49 new participants (23 pre-release and 26 post-release) between April and September 2015, a 1,771-percent decrease. During the first half of FY 2015, 100 percent (11 participants) of all post-release participants who successfully completed the program were classified as either moderate or high risk for recidivism. In the second half of FY 2015, the percentage remained unchanged at 100 percent (10 participants). Overall, the completion rates by quarter were 80 percent (pre-release) and 70 percent (post-release). Technical assistance and training programs intended to improve outcomes for grantees are described. 9 figures and 4 tables
