487 Lessons in Outcomes Research from a Behavioral Health Unit*

Evidence-based treatment programs designed specifically for a correctional population are lacking. In this session, the presenter will review the use of a group milieu treatment for impulse control and high-risk behaviors within a correctional setting, detail a study investigating its effectiveness, and discuss strategies for establishing outcome-based studies in corrections.
