This paper presents the results of a follow-up study of twenty adult offenders released from Oregon Department of Corrections (prison) between 1986 and 1993, and first interviewed in the mid 1990s. We further explore the problems encountered by these offenders and how they negotiated various obstacles on the "outside." Suggestions for future programs are included in our analysis of the data.
