Greater community involvement contributes to lower re-offending rates: Concerted Focus on Stronger Rehabilitation for Drug Offenders

“The lower recidivism rate is an encouragement to the various agencies and community partners involved in giving second chances to ex-offenders and helping them to rehabilitate.
