Follow-up Report on the Institutional Substance Abuse Treatment Program Administered by the Department of Corrections, Report No. 96-70, March 1997
Full report in PDF format

  • In response to our initial report, the Department of Corrections has taken steps to improve program data collection, improve inmate treatment completion, and monitor private provider compliance with contract requirements.
  • However, the Department has not implemented a process to collect reliable data on inmate treatment needs nor has the Department conducted an evaluation of its substance abuse treatment programs.
  • Therefore, it has not been determined whether the substance abuse treatment programs are effective in changing inmate behaviors.
