The purpose of this research study was to examine the effect of treatment programs on recidivism among methamphetamine users within the male exoffender population. The study was an assessment of whether race, ethnicity, and mental illness play a role in recidivism among methamphetamine users in this group. The present study used a Chi-Square analysis to assess statistical significance between independent and dependent variables. The data for this study were obtained from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Association (SAMHSA) in order to assess the statistical significance of the identified variables: treatment programs and recidivism among methamphetamine-using adult male exoffenders, race and recidivism among methamphetamine-using adult male exoffenders, and mental illness and number of prior arrests among methamphetamine-using adult male exoffenders. Results revealed a relationship between the age of the exoffenders and their number of arrests prior to admission to treatment programs. Further analysis revealed a relationship between the type of treatment program, inpatient or outpatient, and the exoffenders’ number of prior arrests.
