Question and answer
WHAT ARE THE ORIGINS OF PRISONER REHABILITATION.
The thought and purpose behind prison has been, throughout history, to deter criminals from committing crimes. Rehabilitation of prisoners has been classically second to punishing them for their crimes. [ As our society has changed through various civil rights movements, the rights and treatment of prisoners has become a paramount concern for many people. Classes and rehabilitation programs have
sprung up in nearly every prison in the US. These programs however, have not been adequate to rehabilitate prisoners as dire sentences are seeing decreased implementation due to the battle over prisoners’ rights. Rehabilitation as a concept in our prisons needs a massive revision. In conjunction with revisions to rehabilitation, the implementation of dire consequences for repeat offenders could act to further reduce crime. ]

How does drug use relate to delinquency?
Weegy: Studies taking from the Center for Treatment Research organization have found youths who take drugs under 15 years of age are at a greater risk for developing delinquent behaviors than adolescents above that age. [ Moreover, depending on the type of substance being abused and its prolonged use, juveniles can become physically and/or psychologically dependent; therefore, juvenile are more willing to participate in delinquent activity, such as stealing or selling drugs, in order to pay for their supply of drugs or seek out a negative socialization group with other delinquent peers, which in return will provide easier access to drugs (Liddle, 2008). ] (More)

Parole is a conditional release from prison. The person released must agree to certain provisions for the remainder of his/her sentence. Some of the things a parolee must do are: meet with a parole officer regularly, have a curfew, gain employment, avoid use of alcohol and drugs, etc.
