Rehabilitation, what is rehabilitation? Rehabilitation is the action of restoring someone to a normal life through training and therapy after incarcerated, addiction or illness.

The purpose of rehabilitation is to treat the offender in order for the offender to return to society and be able to contribute, rehabilitation is also a punishment for breaking a law.

According to Darbouze, for a juvenile to re-enter into the mainstream of society, he/she must first be rehabilitated. Rehabilitation is essential to young offenders because it reduces the chances of recidivism. Being refurbished sets the foundation of a healthy lifestyle in the community once out of the juvenile justice system. (Darbouze, 2008) According to the research, the rehabilitative model is considered to be more efficient than the retributive model (which is known as punishment). The rehabilitative model is more successful than the retributive model, because it's more practical, and it addresses the needs of the youths. The model gives juveniles, some form of hope and an option in making it in society without having to recidivate. In some way rehabilitation ties with Strain Theory by Merton (1938). (Darbouze, 2008). According to Darbouze rehabilitation is imperative because it teaches juveniles that some necessary steps and priorities are taken to obtain goals. And to accomplish such goals, one must do so in a legitimate way. (Darbouze, 2008). “When one does not have the means to obtain goals, sometimes one is
Almost all of the patients that are encountered in physical therapy (PT) are taking one or more medications for various conditions. Physical therapists (PTs) do not prescribe medicine to patients. However, it is important for the PT to be aware of the patients’ medications and the effects of the medications on their PT. The effects of medications in combination with the effects of their particular conditions will help guide the PT in the safest and most effective therapy for each unique individual that presents to the clinic. Knowledge of the patient’s conditions and medications also help the PT decide the appropriateness of therapy and referral to other professionals.

Did you know that imprisonment is useless? Traditionally prisons have been argued to serve at least one of two purposes, which are to punish the offenders and to protect the general public. But in recent years the number of crimes seems to keep on increasing exponentially and imprisoning offenders do not have any impact on the increasing crime rate. With this in mind, how do we keep our society safe and peaceful, the answer is an excellent rehabilitation program. Prisoners will be more civilised and are less likely to commit crimes if they are rehabilitated well enough.
The idea that more effort should be made to reform offenders is a theme that that been persistent throughout the history of American corrections. Rehabilitative ideals have helped lead the way in the renovation of the correctional system. Implementations of intermediate sentencing, parole, probation, and a separate juvenile justice system were all part of the process. While the rehabilitation process seems like the perfect plan to transform the incarcerated, can prisoners truly be rehabilitated, or should punishment merely be retributive in nature? Looking at Robert Matinson 's theories in What Works? Questions and Answers About Prison Reform while comparing it to other scholars with help to answer this
In this essay I will discuss theoretical principals of rehabilitation of a particular patient I cared for while on clinical placement. It will focus on the role of the multidisciplinary team involved in this rehabilitation process post acute myocardial infarction and the education and support given to the patient and her family during the discharge planning process. Also I will be including statistics and evidence of pathophysiology. The National Service Framework for Older People (Department of Health, 2001) sets out eight standards including standard three about intermediate care services that promote independence and provide effective rehabilitation services.
