Many Community Supervision Offenders Participate in Substance Abuse Treatment Programs

Many offenders on community supervision participate in substance abuse programs or are routinely tested for drugs as part of their probation or supervision sentences.

  • The pie chart below shows that the majority (83.0%) of those on community supervision who are participating in community-based substance abuse treatment programs do so on an outpatient basis. The other types of programs available to these offenders include secure (movement beyond the facility is restricted) and non-secure (movement is less restricted) programs.

  • The bar chart below shows that of those who entered residential community-based drug treatment programs in FY 1998-99, 77.5% of those who successfully completed non-secure programs and 70.5% of those who completed secure programs have had no recommitment to Florida state prison or supervision after two years.

  • While the number of offenders being tested for drugs increased slightly in the last year, the percentage of those testing positive for drugs remained the same (11%).
