Drug Offender Reform Act: DORA Statewide Report
Study Dates: 2009 - 2013
Study Description: Statewide DORA was implemented as planned, with supervision and treatment rates comparing favorably to the Pilot. At the time of the 2011 update, nearly all probationers (85%) and parolees (97%) had exited supervision. Nearly half of probationers (45%) had successfully exited supervision (39% supervision and treatment) compared to 34% of parolees (31% supervision and treatment). Longer time in treatment and more intensive supervision were related to successful treatment and supervision completion, as well as longer time to recidivism post-supervision. Treatment completers did significantly better on post-DORA criminal justice outcomes.
