Substance abuse and mental health problems constitute a significant proportion of the concerns of the criminal justice system. In answer to the rise of these issues, the justice system increasingly uses court orders to force individuals into treatment programs. In this volume, the contributors examine rehabilitation as it works under these court orders, analyzing the efficacy of the judicial approach. Exploring key features of service delivery, partnership arrangements, and the professional and ethical dilemmas that arise, they highlight perspectives from service users themselves, providing rare and valuable insight for criminal justice research.

Clemens Bartollas, Ohio State University
“The chapters in this volume are of a high quality and examine the nature of risk and rehabilitation, especially the ways in which the risk paradigm has distorted both rehabilitative ideas as well as the practice of working with people who have multiple and complex needs. The final chapter in this book, ‘Relationship and Rehabilitation in a post “what works” era,’ is a particularly important contribution to the literature.” 
Mike Guilfoyle | Probation Journal
“The authors review the current practice and policy arrangements that shape treatment provision and do not shy away from proffering potential solutions to some of the conflicting evidence on mixing punishment with treatment.”
Clemens Bartollas, University of Northern Iowa

“Edited by Aaron Pycroft and Suzie Clift, Risk and Rehabilitation focuses on risk and rehabilitation with reference to substance abuse and mental health problems. The chapters in this volume are of a high quality and examine the nature of risk and rehabilitation, especially the ways in which the risk paradigm has distorted both rehabilitative ideas as well as the practice of working with people who have multiple and complex needs. The final chapter in this book, “Relationship and Rehabilitation in a post ‘what works’ era,” is a particularly important contribution to the literature.”

 

Alex Stevens, University of Kent

“A topical, insightful collection, drawing useful insights from both research and practice, on contemporary developments in working with offenders who are highly stigmatised and face substantial barriers in seeking desistance and reintegration.”
