Here’s What Happened . . .
Juvenile reentry is defined as programs, services, and supports intended to assist youths transitioning from (juvenile corrections) residential placement back into the community (Gies, 2003). Reentry represents a small but crucial part of the corrections continuum as the proper coordination of substance abuse, mental health, educational, vocational, and other services is critical if the youth in question is to successfully rejoin the community. In this exercise, you will consider a wide assortment of contributing factors in one juvenile’s situation and will select the most salient points to determine how best to successfully reintegrate this juvenile into the community.
You are a reentry specialist at the Centervale Juvenile Detention Center. John Drew is a who has been detained in the facility for the previous nine months. His first offense on record was running away from home when he was twelve. Since then, he has appeared in juvenile court for a number of offenses, including trespassing, breaking curfew, shoplifting, and possessing prescription drugs illegally. His most recent offense, and the one responsible for his stay in the Centervale Juvenile Detention Center, was an unarmed assault on another youth. Drew is quite behind in his studies, having completed course work only through his eighth-grade year.
During his time at the detention center, Drew was given a mental health assessment and found to have bipolar disorder. He has a history of substance use, using marijuana, methamphetamine, and cocaine; Drew recently indicated that he now prefers prescription drugs. Upon release, Drew will serve two years on probation. Drew’s parents have stated that he will live in their home upon release, though he has in the past stated his intentions to live on his own. He has expressed remorse for his previous behaviors and says he’s anxious to get a fresh start.
