The cycle of crime, incarceration, and recidivism begins and ends with families and communities-where crimes and victimization occur, where families of offenders (including young children) are left behind during a prison stay, and where inmates ultimately return. Returning to a community with few job outlets, or with few options for drug abuse treatment, or with few other supports would trip up anyone facing these types of social challenges. This paper addresses the need for effective treatment of families affected by alcohol and drug dependence.
