Helping Individuals with criminal records Reenter through Employment

Serving the Employment Needs of Justice-Involved Juveniles and Adults: A Primer for Treatment and Recovery Support Service Providers (2008)

Serving the Employment Needs of Justice-Involved Juveniles and Adults: A Primer for Treatment and Recovery Support Service Providers was developed by the Legal Action Center (LAC) to provide Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT)/Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) grantees and their sub-recipient contractors a basic understanding of federal and state laws that directly affect individuals in recovery who have a criminal history.

Additionally, the guide provides information about legal and practical challenges that may hinder employment, training, and educational opportunities for people with criminal records. But more importantly, it offers best practices that service providers may utilize to successfully connect justice-involved juveniles and adults to employment and educational opportunities while in recovery.
