Prison Based Drug Treatment Programs

The 1990s witnessed the growth of prison TCs throughout the United States. The spread of these programs was fueled by the results of evaluation studies in New York State, Delaware, California, and Texas, which confirmed the effectiveness of this modality. These studies also emphasized that TC treatment needs to be of sufficient duration (9 to 12 months) to be maximally effective, with inmates recruited within 12 to 15 months of release eligibility. Further, a continuum of TC treatment linked to the inmate's changing correctional status (prison*work release*parole/other community supervision) was found most likely to lead to long-term success (Martin et al., 1999).
