Community Corrections and the Health of Criminal Justice Populations
Author: ADAM MATZ
Published in JHHSA, Vol. 41 No. 3
Community supervision remains the most prevalent form of correctional control in the United States, with 1 in 53 adults on probation supervision. A large proportion of probationers, as well as parolees, possess distinct health issues associated with substance abuse, mental illness, and co- occurring disorders. These behavioral disorders influence and interact with criminal behavior patterns, commonly expressed as dynamic risk factors, necessitating increased collaboration with community service providers and health organizations. This article provides an overview of community corrections, health problems associated with community corrections populations, programming considerations, and notable barriers to expanding justice-health collaboration.
