The Impact of In-Prison Therapeutic Community Programs on Prison Management.
Prendergast, Michael; Farabee, David; Cartier, Jerome
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v32 n3 p63-78 2001
Presents findings of a process evaluation of the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility. Measures from the evaluation suggest that the presence of a therapeutic community within a prison is associated with significant advantages for management of the institution-including lower rates of infractions, reduced absenteeism among correctional staff, and virtually no illicit drug use among inmates. (Contains 16 references, 1 table, and an appendix.) (Author/GCP)
