Impact of Treatment on Non-Violent Criminal Offending among Adults with Co-Occurring Disorders in the United States
Nicole Jarrett

Aingyea had been on her way to her senior year at Livingston College (Rutgers University), majoring in Urban Studies and minoring in Africana Studies and Economics, when she decided to participate in Project L/EARN. A major reason she chose to attend Rutgers was its location and the attractive financial package offered. Aingyea’s dedication to helping youth in inner cities had been strengthened during that summer and thus, she furthered her plans to begin graduate studies in Urban Studies in the fall of 2006.

Aingyea had applied for the program because she anticipated a great research and learning experience. Project L/EARN has opened her eyes to the challenges of research related work and she is happy she had the opportunity to learn about research and to meet and work with the other interns and instructional staff. She treasures the friendships she has made during the program.

Aingyea had spent the summer working on her project which focuses on whether dual treatment for co-occurring disorders can reduce non-violent offenses. Her research indicates that there are policy implications which need to be addressed in order to implement dual-treatment for individuals with co-occurring disorders.
