| Author: Carrie Pettus, Tanya Renn, Stephen Tripodi, Sarah Tamburri
Research suggests untreated trauma symptoms contribute to high rates of incarceration and re-incarceration among young males. As trauma symptomatology can increase during reentry, implementing trauma treatment during this time is critical. This study evaluates the impact of the Resiliency in Stressful Experiences (RISE) program for 18-35-year-old incarcerated males releasing from prison and will provide critical information about how trauma-informed reentry programming impacts traditional reentry outcomes and identify key mechanisms of action.

Crisis Stabilization Units (CSUs) offer short-term stabilization services to persons experiencing a mental health or substance use-related crisis. Individuals can be admitted to CSUs through law enforcement decision and referral, however, little is known about this process. Additionally, once admitted, a significant challenge for CSUs is retaining individuals in treatment after their initial stabilization.
