Approximately 300 men from RSAT reenter the community annually. Approximately 60-85% of men who have been incarcerated are involved with substance abuse. About 40-60% of inmates have lower than a high school education level Why is ROAR needed in our communities?
Men re-entering our communities face myriad obstacles to remaining crime free such as: A lack of employment and finances Unmanaged symptoms of substance use and mental health disorders Men often struggle with Inmate disorientation and public stigma which becomes an obstacle to effective reentry Why is ROAR needed in our communities?
ROAR will provide services that promote long-term recovery from substance use and co-occurring disorders. Individual Service Plans will be tailored around the unique needs of each participant. Each participant will be encouraged and guided in driving the goals and objectives of his treatment plan as he progresses through different stages of recovery. How will ROAR help?
Participants are provided assistance with obtaining employment/vocational development services as well as educational opportunities. Trauma informed services help men address issues related to trauma. Men are assisted with family reunification and developing improved parenting and nurturing skills. ROAR’s services empower men so they are less likely to return to crime. How will ROAR help?
