Description

A first step in evaluating the program was to assess use of services. We collected four types of services data on each individual: 1) Summit County jail, 2) State prison, 3) State psychiatric hospital, and 4) general hospital. Each included both the number of incarcerations or hospitalizations and the number of days per year. We also collected Ohio Outcomes data on employment, current living situation, and social support. For the purposes of the following discussion, the actual day of entry into the program is not accounted for, only the year of entry. Therefore, use of services prior to entry and those used during the program is not differentiated.
