New evaluation tool aids Day Reporting Centers

The road to recovery can be full of detours. Sometimes people need extra guidance to find their pathway to success.

That’s the idea behind Georgia’s Day Reporting Centers. Since 2002, these centers have provided intensive, community-based counseling and rehabilitative services for nonviolent probationers and parolees with substance use and mental health problems. Those who complete programs at the centers have a better chance of staying out of jail and reintegrating back into society.

The Georgia Department of Community Supervision, which manages the state’s 35 centers, wants to enhance the opportunities for positive outcomes but needs to know the right metrics to measure. That has been difficult because evaluation methods typically used for DRCs are outdated and rely on tools primarily adapted from more custodial settings such as prisons, jails and detention centers. As a consequence, administrators have been uncertain of where improvements are needed.
