Abstract:

The future of the United States Disciplinary Barracks USDB and the Army Corrections Program is under debate. One side argues that the USDB is archaic and too expensive to maintain. The other argues that the USDB is needed to provide the rehabilitative programs for the long term inmate and that the USDB could become self-sustaining with an expansion of industry. This study compares and contrasts the current populations and rehabilitation programs of the USDB and the Teen Challenge Program to determine whether the techniques and services, espoused by the Teen Challenge Program, could apply to or benefit the USDB. To accomplish the cited task, the study describes the evolution of the penitentiary in America and the shift towards community-based corrections today examines the values, perceptions, and keys toward rehabilitation analyzes the rehabilitative programs of the USDB and Teen Challenge to determine strengths, weaknesses, and implications and provide conclusions and recommendations concerning the implementation of the Teen Challenge community-based program at the USDB.
