Prisoners After Prison Overdose

Satisfactory Essays
A research study was done by professors at the University of Denver on prisoners after they are released. Once released from prison, prisoners have an elevated risk of dying due to drugs within a short amount of time. The study compares prior drug history, prescriptions, and other overdoses. The inmates were contacted two months after they were released to see if they are using, suicidal, religion, or programs they are involved in. The study includes ways to help prevent relapse and death in recently released convicts.
