dc.description.abstract The recidivism rate of ex-offenders in America continues to increase each decade, and each decade the debate on the subject of recidivism begins and ends with nothing truly accomplished. Many studies on this subject state that it is through rehabilitation that the recidivism rate can truly be reduced. Can the recidivism rate be lowered with a revision of the reentry and rehabilitation programs available to ex-offenders? After analyzing three states identified as having the best, worst, and mid-range reentry systems in the country, it was concluded in this thesis that the key to reducing recidivism is to create a national recidivism program by which all states can follow. This program needs to have a centralized management structure, be adequately funded, address issues such as ex-offender housing, finding affordable health insurance for ex-offenders, reducing the effects of prisonization, helping ex-offenders to find employment and maintaining inmates relationships with family members, and continuing education for skill enhancement. By adequately addressing these issues and centralizing the management of the reentry programs nationwide, a reduction of the recidivism rate should follow. en
