This unique self-scoring assessment identifies the challenges offenders will face upon release and re-entry into society. It measures barriers in the following categories: basic needs, job search, family, wellness, and career development. With this tool, counselors and administrators can quickly identify their clients' major concerns. In addition, the Offender Reintegration Scale (ORS) can be used as both a pre-release and post-release measure.

The ORS helps offenders and ex-offenders identify potential barriers to successful re-entry, and helps them develop a plan for overcoming these barriers to become a successful, contributing member of society. Counselors and administrators can better prevent recidivism, institutions can access the success of rehabilitation efforts and programs, and ex-offenders can take the steps necessary to move forward.

The ORS is intended for use by correctional treatment specialists, correctional counselors, pre-trial services officers, probation officers, parole officers, juvenile court counselors, correctional facility administrators, rehabilitation counselors, pre-release counselors, residential placement counselors, and residential re-entry center counselors. No special training is required to administer or interpret the assessment.
