Description
 
No question about it – by almost any measure, America operates the world’s largest, costliest, and most dysfunctional criminal justice ($250 billion) and incarceration ($80 billion) systems. With nearly 2.2 million prisoners in state and federal institutions, another 12 million circulating in and out of jails and detention centers, and 77 million with arrest records, America is an arrested society with more troubling rap sheets than promising resumes!

Indeed, each year nearly 700,000 ex-offenders exit prison for the free world. Within three years of release, two-thirds return to prison where they cost taxpayers between $25,000 and $210,000 a year to experience justice and retribution. Once released with a measly $200 in gate money and no housing, job, or re-entry/support plan, not surprisingly, ex-offenders are like fish out of the water – they don’t make it on the outside for long.

But help is on the way for surviving this criminal justice maze. Filled with powerful insights, advice, self-tests, examples, and exercises that focus on both hope and action, The Ex-Offender’s Re-Entry Success Guide is the ultimate guide for those who want to stay out for good and do something meaningful with their lives. While the whole re-entry process is fraught with challenges that can lead to rejections, disappointments, and temptations, this also is a time for self-renewal and transformation. There are silver linings here for those who see opportunities in adversity – a unique time for ex-offenders to inject greater meaning and direction into their lives so they will never again waste their time and mind in a prison, jail, or detention center.

This book addresses the major challenges facing ex-offenders as they re-enter the free world.
