Predicting Retention for Clients in Prison-based Therapeutic Communities across Three Time-in-treatment Thresholds

Abstract:

Drug-involved offenders comprise a significant proportion of offenders in our prisons. Therapeutic communities have been found to be an effective tool in reducing relapse and recidivism among drug-involved offenders. Research has found that it that an important aspect of reducing recidivism is the ability of these programs to retain subjects for their full course of treatment prior to release. Based on prior research, the current study used several variables measuring the psychological functioning, social functioning, treatment motivation, and attitude towards counselors of 601 prisoners across five prison-based therapeutic communities to predict retention rates for three different thresholds of completion: 90 days, 6 months and successful program completion. A total of 5 prison-based therapeutic community treatment programs were examined. Retention rates varied dramatically across the 5 programs with one program retaining a high proportion (87%) and one retaining a low proportion (40%) of their clients. Findings from the multiple logistic regression analysis showed that predictors vary across time-in-treatment thresholds.
