Evaluation of the State of Utah’s Pay for Success (PFS) Pilot Project: The ReSet Program

Study completion: 2020
Contact Person:  Rob Butters or Christian Sarver

In 2018, the state of Utah began piloting a criminal justice intervention targeting high-risk, high-need male parolees with co-occurring substance use disorders and mental illness. The ReSet program was developed by Odyssey House (OH) to provide integrated, comprehensive residential treatment that addresses substance use disorder, mental health, and criminogenic needs. Services are provided using a therapeutic community treatment model in a community-based residential program and specific program components include:

  • Evidence-based interventions specifically designed to address criminogenic factors that are tied to recidivism
  • Substance use disorder treatment
  • Employment support through job placement, education, and training
  • Support and case management to meet individual needs through benefits enrollment, health resources, and community engagement
  • Housing support

The Utah Criminal Justice Center (UCJC) was selected as the evaluator on this project and will be conducting a randomized controlled trial (RCT) study to examine the program’s success improving criminal justice, employment, and behavioral health outcomes.
