The Comprehensive Healthcare Re-entry Program (CHRP)--An innovative program working to establish a community response system for ex-offenders. The purpose is to provide comprehensive services and support for successful re-entry into society, and to reduce the recidivism rate. Ex-offenders who enroll in CHRP have access to basic medical care, mental healthcare, including medications, substance abuse treatment, and life skills training. A non-traditional case management approach, a peer-mentoring program, and community resources "wrap-around" the participant to smooth the transition into society. A Clearinghouse is available with printed information, community resources, and internet access. The community repsonse system focuses on the whole environment around re-entry issues, including healthcare, housing, employment readisness, legal and social integration, family/personal relationships, as well as social and organizational barriers.
