Probation Referral Outcome

Courts and probation officers refer many probationers to counseling and treatment programs. In the past, it was assumed
that the probationer was rehabilitated, positively changed or cured because they had completed their mandatory treatment.
Recent research shows this assumption is often wrong. Some probationers do not change. The Probation Referral Outcome
