Default How can I help him reintegrate? Are there any assistance programs?

My boyfriend is being released at the end of the month, and I was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice on everything that comes with that. How can I help him reintegrate into things, and does anyone know of any assistance programs for released felons?

There is much information posted in the Recidivism and Reentry forum.

Expect some great days, but others that aren't too. Be sure to talk everything out, and try to be patient with each other.

Search around and see if you can find any sort of therapy groups for him. My husband is getting out soon and what the HWH is going to require him to do are not going to help him at all with reintegration. Those are not the types of things that would benefit him. Instead, certain types of therapy and working/uniting with him on what he wants to do when he is out would be way more useful than their requirements. Prisoners are not all equal, you cannot treat them all equal. There must be a better way to better tailor programs to inmates as it's not a one size fit all. Some need a lot more services than they're getting and others need way less. If they could figure it out, then maybe they would not need to worry about being spread so thin. Instead of wasting time calling low risk people at all hours of the day, or making someone come in 2x/week for drug tests that have never had any sort of history of such, use that time to work on things that are going to truly help them. But of course, that as we have seen is the problem with a bureaucracy.

You might find some information, programs, or books at this website. The link on this address allows you to search for reentry programs by state.
