Reintegration, Supervised Release, and Intensive Aftercare
(NCJ 175715) August 1999
Bulletin, 24 page(s)
Altschuler, D. M., Armstrong, T. L., MacKenzie, D. L.
Examines what has worked in reintegrating juvenile offenders, what has not worked, and why. In the late 1980's, OJJDP began supporting a long-term research and development initiative to develop an intensive juvenile aftercare model. This Bulletin appears as an experimental evaluation of the Intensive Aftercare Program Model is well under way. In the main text, "Reintegrative Confinement and Intensive Aftercare," Altschuler and Armstrong describe the intensive aftercare program model, distinguish it from other models and programs that have been implemented, and analyze individual intensive aftercare programs. In the commentary, "The Effectiveness of Aftercare Programs—Examining the Evidence," MacKenzie evaluates existing aftercare programs, studies of these programs, and Altschuler and Armstrong's conclusions.
