ADDA has partnered with the Delaware Center for Justice (DCJ) to create the ADHD Corrections Project – Delaware's first re-entry initiative designed to address the specific needs of inmates with ADHD. The objective of this pilot project is to reduce recidivism by recognizing and addressing the additional obstacles faced by ex-offenders with previously undiagnosed and/or untreated symptoms of ADHD.
Since 2010, we have been working within local correctional facilities in Wilmington, DE to identify, educate and provide support to inmates with ADHD. Early findings have helped shed more light on the link between this disorder and difficulties with the criminal justice system. In turn, this improved understanding contributes to more appropriate rehabilitation strategies.
