Rehabilitation programs function to reduce the risk of re-offense by providing services that address the social, educational, vocational, and psychological needs of offenders. They are designed to promote offenders’ re-integration into the community. Rehabilitation programs for juvenile offenders specifically target the risk factors (e.g., risk-taking behaviors) that contribute to juvenile delinquency. They are designed to foster adaptive pro-social skills through sill buildings and through the use of family and community supports. Generally rehabilitation programs fall into different categories such as prevention, immediate and intermediate sanction, and residential treatment.
