Louisiana continues to have one of the highest incarceration rates in the world. We also have high recidivism rate because of lack of long-term and sustainable supports. Ensuring that one’s health, mental health, and relationships are attended to are essential to a successful re-entry.
The Re-Entry Mediation Institute of Louisiana seeks to decrease recidivism rates and improve a person’s transition home from incarceration with the sustainable support of positive relationships with family and friends. While there are many wonderful re-entry programs taking place in Louisiana, many are missing the critical element of mental health, relationships, and self-determination.
