"Today when I think of reentry court, I am reminded that nearly every offender sentenced to time in custody will return to the community from whence they came. And thus, every sentencing court is in fact, a reentry court, creating a pathway for the offender’s reentry into society." -Jeff Tauber

5. Reentry Court Deals with the Whole Person

Reentry Courts, unlike other collaborative courts, focuses on primary needs, such as underlying criminogenic or criminal thinking that is most often the basis for criminal behavior in high risk offenders, rather than specific secondary symptomatic needs such as drug and/or mental health problems.

It’s easy to stereotype those who are sent to prison as incorrigible, but the reality is that they are often tough but fragile at the same time. It can take a good deal of patience and tolerance to get them to buy into the program, but when they do, they have an excellent chance to succeed.
