Executive Summary

This report covers the time period from July 1, 1999 - June 30, 2000. Data are reported in sections by Program type. Each section includes an Executive Summary and sub-sections on Providers (as of 6/30/2000), Workload, Outcomes, and Recommitment (where appropriate).

There is a companion report, titled Substance Abuse Programs - Community Report that uses the same format to detail substance abuse programs in community supervision.

Salient points concerning the demographic break down by gender, race, and age for new enrollees in FY 1999-00 are as follows:

  • The highest rate of female participation was in DUALD (29.4%), while the highest percentage of males participants was in MODALITY 3 (91.2%)
  • The highest and lowest percentage of black participants were in TIER1 (52.2%) and DUALD (33.1%) respectively, while for whites it was reversed with 64.1% in DUALD and only 45.8% in TIER1.
  • The highest percentage of participants for each program by age group was (a) TIER1 (age 18-24 [74.7%]); (b) MODALITY 1 (age 18-24 [24.6%]); (c) MODALITY 2 (age 18-24 [32.1%]), (d) MODALITY 3 (age 25-29 [20.2%]); and (e) DUALD (age 35-39 [30.7%]).

Success rates (excluding administrative exits) three years after program entry for FY 1996-97 by applicable program type (from highest to lowest) were:

  • MODALITY 3 (95.8% out of 1,487)
  • MODALITY 1 (66.2% out of 1,394)
  • MODALITY 2 (54.5% out of 2,390)

In general, older inmates were more successful than younger inmates for all MODALITIES, with MODALITY 3 having a relatively high success rate (all at or above 93%) among all age groups. The highest success rates (excluding administrative exits) three (3) years after program entry for FY 1996-97, by program type and age were:

  • MODALITY 3 (age 40-44, 98.8% [158 out of 160])
  • MODALITY 1 (age 45+, 81.0%) [ 94 out of 116])
  • MODALITY 2 (age 45+, 72.1%) [116 out of 161])

Two-year recommitment rates for program completers for FY 1997-98 (from lowest to highest) were:

  • MODALITY 3 (26.8% of 1,484)
  • MODALITY 2 (33.9% of 1,346)
  • MODALITY 1 (34.8% of 661)

As would be expected, older inmates were less likely to recommit, with the age 45+ age group having the lowest two-year recommitment rates for successful program completers for FY 1997-98 for all MODALITIES, as follows:

  • MODALITY 1 (age 45+, 26.4% [19 out of 72])
  • MODALITY 2 (age 45+, 30.2% [38 out of 126])
  • MODALITY 3 (age 45+, 20.0% [27 out of 135])

While the highest two-year recommitment rates for successful program completers for FY 1997-98, by program type and age were:

  • MODALITY 1 (age30-34, 40.3% ( 64 out of 159)
  • MODALITY 2 (age 30-34, 38.5% (117 out of 304)
  • MODALITY 3 (age 40-44, 33.3% (66 out of 198)
