Partners In Recovery is one of the leaders in delivering risk-need-responsivity programming.
Who, what and how we treat each individual is paramount to measured and effective services.
Comprehensive assessments allow us to provide the right service, at the right time, in the right amount, for the right duration for each individual.
Matching the level of service to the participant's risk to re-offend.
Assessing criminogenic needs and targeting them in treatment.
Maximize the participants ability to learn from a rehabilitative intervention by providing cognitive behavioral treatment and tailoring the intervention to the learning style, motivation, abilities, and strengths of the participant.
The risk-need-responsivity model is a model used in criminology to develop recommendations for how prisoners should be assessed based on the risk they present and what they need, and what kinds of environments they should be placed in to reduce recidivism. It was first proposed in 1990 based on the research conducted on classifications of offender treatments by Lee Sechrest and Ted Palmer, among other researchers, in the 1960s and 70s. It was primarily developed by Canadian researchers James Bonta, Donald A. Andrews, and Paul Gendreau. It has been considered the best model that exists for determining offender treatment, and some of the best risk-assessment tools used on offenders are based on it
