What would you do if you were leaving prison with only $50 in your pocket, no housing, no job, no transportation, multiple health problems, and no one to turn to for help? This is the overwhelming reality faced by thousands of men and women released from prison each year in Maryland.
For over 25 years Alternative Directions, Inc. (ADI) has been serving people in prison and individuals returning home after incarceration.
Alternative Directions’ programs for women and men leaving prison have been highly successful in breaking the cycle of recidivism characteristic of individuals who have a history of substance abuse and incarceration. Inside the prisons, ADI helps incarcerated individuals resolve pro se civil legal problems, and provides vital information about services available to them and their families after they are released. These activities include programs such as housing assistance, job placements, and substance abuse programs.
