Pennsylvania State And Local Agencies Partner To Help Offenders Beat Drug And Alcohol Addictions, Succeed In Society
The board currently has re-entry programs operating in Berks, Lackawanna and York counties, with a 23, 17 and 17 percent one-year recidivism rate, respectively. Of those offenders who graduate from the programs, more than 80 percent have not been recommitted since program completion.
The Parole Board is in discussions with the Common Pleas Courts in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia to establish a similar re-entry program.
