This was a personal opinion article by Ed Howes. It gave a good definition of rehabilitation and a key points in the main argument of whether rehabilitation should be taken. The article intensely discusses imprisonment and how it has been done so far. Rehabilitions according to the article will not work since it isolates the violator from the large society.

evaluation by cyberspider

I am not entirely sure if this can be a viable resource since it is a personal discussion between one or more person. The user and other members of the site discuss the issue of the question of prison reform and rehabilitation. Though many key question are posed and answered such as whether punishment is rehabilitation and requirements for prison, this is still not a supported resource since it offers no proof - just a discussion between two people.

This is a article judging the rehabilitation system in the United States. It gives a history starting in the 1960's and discusses in depth all forms of rehabilitation. Though lengthy, it gives useful and non-useful information. The useful information pertains to how rehabilitation should be considered. Like many other resources it discuss what rehabilitation is; but it also considers many forms of rehabilitation - pertaining to for example health, drugs and prison.
The useful information mainly comes from the prison and drugs area and some keypoints are addressed.
