Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the rehabilitation of ex-offenders and the impact that rehabilitation has on recidivism rates. Recidivism of general offenders and drug offenders in both the U. S. and Kentucky will be addressed. Next, the paper will explore the program that Mission Behind Bars and Beyond facilitates, the Nurture Support and Accountability Group (NSAG), and give details about NSAG’s mission and how it assists ex-offenders with reentry from incarceration back into our communities. Ryan Rivard, an ex-offender, is currently a core member of the NSAG group at Eastern Kentucky University. His progress since he has been involved with the student-led group will also be discussed. Lastly, the effects that Mission Behind Bars and Beyond has on all offenders who participate in their program will be presented.
