Incarceration and Reentry

Getting out of prison (also known as re-entry) can be incredibly stressful and pose many challenges, including the need to secure housing and employment, and re-connecting with family and friends. At the same time, while some medical needs may have been addressed in prison, issues like substance abuse and mental illness may not have been addressed at all. Seeing a qualified professional therapist can help with the transition back into society outside of prison. Therapy can provide tools to help solve problems, deal with social situations, and to control anger – in addition to helping with substance abuse issues. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s incarceration and re-entry specialists today.

— Anastasia Gand, Post-Doctoral Fellow

I enjoy helping those that are struggling from zero. Having nothing and starting life from scratch seems tough. I know it is a rut to get out of and start fresh without baggage. Bag and baggage is when to go home and get out of jail to the outside world feeling numb and adjusting to society seems like a party. Rules that don't apply to us and wanting o do the whole world appears easy. Thinking, behavior, and consequences are the key.

— Mary Jackson,, Licensed Professional Counselor in Savannah, GA

For many years my work primarily focused on reentry for offenders coming out of prison. I help individuals process through many years of suppressed emotions and the emotions that surface upon a huge change of going from the inside to being on the outside. I show them that life can have purpose and meaning and their past does not have to define their future. Creating safe, non-judgmental, space is key to being able to feel safe and trust in a world that has turned its back on one.
