Abstract: Most of the data presented pertain to re-entry programs, which is a community-based commitment program that provides structured and specialized treatment for youth to reduce the rate of recidivism and improve youths' functioning in the community. Re-entry/aftercare served 3,376 youths during 1993-94. The average age was 15.1 years old; males composed 89.5 percent of the population and African-Americans, 60.6 percent. For re- entry/aftercare statewide, the average daily population was 384.5 youths. The average length of stay was 4.4 months, and the average age at first delinquency referral for this population was 12.8 years. The average age at discharge was 16.6 years. The average number of prior felony referrals for youths being released from re-entry/aftercare was 9.1, and the average number of prior felony adjudications was 5.1. For re-entry/aftercare, the statewide percentage of felonies as the commitment offense was 74.1 percent. Almost 19 percent of the commitment offenses were misdemeanors. Slightly over 53 percent of the juveniles released from re-entry/aftercare had successfully completed their programs. Follow-up of further involvement with the juvenile justice system and adult system shows that the subsequent adjudication rate for youth 1 year following their release was 38.6 percent for re-entry/aftercare. 17 tables and 32 charts
