The effectiveness of correctional treatment : a survey of treatment evaluation studies by Douglas S Lipton( Book )

16 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a compilation of descriptions of English-language research studies, conducted between 1945 and 1967 to evaluate the treatment of criminal and juvenile offenders. Each of the 231 studies has been annotated and classed into categories. Study findings are classified according to eleven treatment methods (independent variables) and seven desired areas of change (dependent variables). The independent variables include imprisonment, parole, casework and individual counselling, milieu therapy, and medical methods. The dependent variables discussed are recidivism, institutional adjustment, vocational adjustment, educational achievement, drug and alcohol re-addiction, personality and attitude change, and community adjustment.

The effectiveness of treatment for drug abusers under criminal justice supervision by Douglas S Lipton( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proportion of people in the criminal justice system who are substance abusers is very high and has grown larger in recent years. Rehabilitation and treatment offered to prison inmates has had a checkered history in this country, however. This paper interweaves a number of themes related to these facts: the relationship of drugs to crime, the current overcrowded situation in correctional facilities, and state-of-the-art treatment approaches used with substance-abusing offenders who are in custody. The paper presents the findings of studies that have demonstrated that in-custody treatment, particularly the therapeutic community (TC) model, can be effective in preventing rearrest and in other outcomes. Moreover, with this approach, successful outcomes are positively related to the amount of time spent in treatment. Several successful projects - notably Stay'n Out, Cornerstone, Amity Prison TC, Key-Crest, KEEP, and TASC - are highlighted. The CDATE project, a 25-year update of the author's study of the effectiveness of correctional treatment, is also described

National Evaluation of Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) Programs in the United States, 1995-1999 by Douglas S Lipton( )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the National Institute of Justice wherein NDRI would evaluate the extent to which the goals of the RSAT program were being accomplished and the problems that were encountered by the participating states. The methods of this national evaluation were: (1) an initial state survey to ascertain the RSAT programs and program directors in each of the 50 states plus five territories and the District of Columbia and to collect basic information on the aggregate impact of the RSAT-funded programs in each state or territory (Part 1, State Data), (2) a follow-up state survey to collect more detailed information on the aggregate impact of the RSAT-funded programs in each state (Part 1, State Data), and (3) an initial program survey to describe the separate RSAT programs as they came on line and to assess whether a few of the programs might serve as model programs which could undergo subsequent intensive evaluation (Part 2, Program Data). The sampling method used was a census of all the existing RSAT-funded programs and all of the state RSAT officials. Part 1 variables include the amount of RSAT funds received by the state in fiscal years 1996 to 1998, amounts from other sources of funding, and amount spent on salaries, training, drug tests, other supplies, and

National Evaluation of Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) Programs in the United States, 1995-1999 by Douglas S Lipton( )

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Residential Substance Abuse Treatment (RSAT) for State Prisoners Formula Grant Program, created by Title III (Subtitle U of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994), was designed by Congress to implement residential substance abuse programs providing individual and group treatment for inmates in residential facilities operated by state and local correctional agencies. Under the Corrections Program Office of the Office of Justice Programs of the United States Department of Justice, state and local correctional agencies received funds to develop or enhance existing programs that: (1) lasted between six and 12 months, (2) provided residential treatment facilities set apart from the general correctional population, (3) were directed at the substance abuse problems of the inmate, (4) were intended to develop the inmate's cognitive, behavioral, social, vocational, and other skills in order to treat related problems as well as the substance abuse, and (5) continued to require urinalysis and/or other proven reliable forms of drug and alcohol testing of individuals assigned to treatment programs during and after release from residential custody. The National Development and Research Institutes, Inc. (NDRI) entered into a cooperative agreement with the National Institute of Justice wherein NDRI would evaluate the extent to which the goals of the RSAT program were being accomplished and the problems that were encountered by the participating states. The methods of this national evaluation were: (1) an initial state survey to ascertain the RSAT programs and program directors in each of the 50 states plus five territories and the District of Columbia and to collect basic information on the aggregate impact of the RSAT-funded programs in each state or territory (Part 1, State Data), (2) a follow-up state survey to collect more detailed information on the aggregate impact of the RSAT-funded programs in each state (Part 1, State Data), and (3) an initial progr
