Florida Re-Entry Subdivision (aka Recovery, Treatment, and Rehabilitation)
The role of the Re-entry subdivision is to provide quality programs to inmates, equipping them with the competencies necessary to become productive, crimefree members of society. In addition to the FDC organizational mission statement, the Re-entry Subdivision has its own mission, to provide the most effective rehabilitative care for inmates of any race, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, creed, national origin, or color, and to engage in research, development, and teaching programs to reduce both recidivism and dependency. This subdivision has recently been faced with some challenges, including budget constraints leading to inadequate funding for programs, overpopulation of corrections facilities, lack of sufficient staff, and a high rate of inmate recidivism. These impacts have led to a high employee turnover rate. However, the staff that has been hired has shown great motivation to learn the job, creating a positive environment in the department. Documented flexibility has shown that the department is capable of adjusting and adapting to changes effectively. • Former Offender Re-Entry Programs and Resources in Florida: https://www.recordgone.com/articles/former-offender-re-entry-programs-and-resourcesflorida.htm
