Recommitments may occur as a result of an offense or technical violation while in treatment. This, of course, results in a program exit due to revocation of supervision. Recommitments may also occur following treatment exits (successful completion, unsuccessful or administrative exit) while still on supervision or after supervision release date.
Workload The enrollment data for a particular program during a given time period.
