Implementation of the Intensive Community-Based Aftercare Program
(NCJ 181464) July 2000
Bulletin, 20 page(s)
Wiebush, R. G., McNulty, B., Le, T.
Provides an overview of the Intensive Aftercare Program (IAP) model—the goal of which is to reduce recidivism among high-risk juvenile parolees—and describes its implementation in participating sites. The IAP model posits that effective intervention with serious, chronic juvenile offenders requires not only intensive supervision and services after institutional release, but also a focus on reintegration during incarceration and a highly structured and gradual transition process that bridges institutionalization and aftercare. This Bulletin also assesses the extent to which implementation has been successful, both with respect to the specific components and the overall model, and identifies the factors that facilitated or impeded program implementation.
