Redirection Pilots Meet and Exceed Residential Commitment Outcomes; $5.8 Million Saved
Report 07-10, February 2007
- The Redirection Program has achieved a $5.8 million cost avoidance for the state in its first two years of operation. Overall, the Redirection Program operates at a lower cost than residential delinquency programs and achieves similar outcomes. However, Redirection programs at two sites-Broward and Escambia counties-attained significantly stronger outcomes, as youth served by these programs were significantly less likely to be rearrested after treatment than similar youth released from residential commitment. These programs were rated as fully proficient in the treatment model by the provider.
- Youth who received electronic monitoring during the first month of treatment had significantly more arrests after completing treatment than those who completed the program without electronic monitoring.
