Returning Home: Understanding the Challenges of Prisoner Reentry: Maryland Pilot Study: Findings from Baltimore
The manner in which released prisoners navigate the "challenges of reentry, what services they need that are not currently being provided, and the extent to which certain individual and contextual factors can serve as either risk or protective factors with regard to subsequent drug use and criminal behavior" are examined (p. 2). Eleven chapters follow an executive summary: introduction; research design; employment and finances; substance use; preparation for reentry and the moment of release; physical and mental health; family; community and housing; attitudes and expectations; criminal involvement; and policy implications.
