Description

The Earned Release Program (ERP) is a residential substance abuse treatment program offering early release to eligible non-violent offenders that complete the program. The program is designed to be a sentencing option for judges to promote public safety while holding the offender accountable, and was developed as a part of a larger set of initiatives in the state budget to control Wisconsin’s prison population. The current qualitative and quantitative evaluation findings resulted in a variety of suggestions for program improvement. These recommendations are related to system-level issues, treatment program modifications, reach-in/reentry issues, assessment of post-release outcomes, and continuing evaluation.
