Description

This evaluation of the Rutland County Treatment Court (RCTC) is a follow-up to an outcome evaluation conducted in February of 2013. The result of that outcome evaluation revealed a recidivism rate of 35.4% for subjects who graduated from the RCTC, which is significantly less than the recidivism rate of 54.0% for participants who were terminated or withdrew from the program. However, since a control group was not available for comparison, it was not possible to determine from the research whether these results represented a significant reduction in recidivism rates compared to what would be expected from similar types of offenders who were not influenced by benefits from the RCTC program. This evaluation was initiated with the objective to investigate the feasibility of generating a valid test control group that could be used in confirming the significance of the outcome evaluation results.
