Therapeutic Courts and Recidivism
Group: University of Alaska Anchorage Justice Center
This article provides a brief description of results of an Alaska Judicial Council evaluation of the Alaska Court System's three felony-level therapeutic courts. The evaluation, which followed 117 offenders who participated in one of the three programs, revealed that graduates of the programs have been rearrested and re-convicted far less frequently than comparison offenders who did not participate in the programs. Moreover, the longer the participants remained in the programs, the less likely they were to recidivate, even if they did not graduate. A brief bibliography of resources on recidivism in Alaska is included.
