Abstract:

Debt has been identified as a barrier to the successful reentry of prisoners. This study provides a comprehensive snapshot of debt among substance using offenders incarcerated in New South Wales, Australia. Ninety-seven percent of participants (N = 156) reported some form of debt, most often to the government department responsible for fines and court-costs (State Debt Recovery Office; M = AU$8,569). These debts were estimated to take an average of 11-years to repay and were perceived to have large negative impacts on both employment and relationships. Associated helplessness and anxiety in 40% of cases has negative implications for reentry prospects.
