What impacts recidivism?

Each year, 22,000 individuals are released from North Carolina Department of Public Safety facilities. What it shown to have the greatest impact on recidivism? Individualized re-entry plans. Successful re-entry begins with planning well in advance of a person’s release date.

Changed Choices clients begin working on successful re-entry as soon as they become a client. Each woman works with her coach to create a Vision Plan focused on goals and action steps creating a new path forward. Other programs in North Carolina also focus on this approach.
