Program C: Rehabilitation

Program Authorization: R.S. 15:821-840.2 and R.S. 36:401-409

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Rehabilitation Program is to provide an environment that enables behavioral changes by making available to inmates rehabilitation opportunities that will increase their odds of being successful when reintegrated into society.

The goals of the Rehabilitation Program are:

  1. Increase the odds of inmates being successful when reintegrated into society by providing literacy, academic, and vocational educational programs, and religious guidance programs for those who demonstrate motivation for change and the desire to participate.
  2. Provide benefits to state and local governments by requiring all able-bodied inmates to participate in work programs and on-the-job training.
  3. Provide inmates an opportunity for spiritual growth and constructive ways to interact and use energy by offering religious guidance and recreational programs.

The Rehabilitation Program provides rehabilitation opportunities to offenders through literacy, academic, and vocational programs, religious guidance programs, recreational programs, on-the-job training, and institutional work programs. The Rehabilitation Program comprises approximately 0.8% of the total institution budget.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
