To facilitate planning of a state-wide reentry program for parolees with histories of drug and alcohol abuse, group interviews were conducted to determine the perceived problems and reentry service needs of 110 male and female inmates of Oregon correctional institutions. Expressed concerns about problems related to frustrations of prison experience, familial and peer relationships, parole supervision, and day-to-day survival skills point to significant gaps and biases in existing reentry services planned from an "objective" viewpoint that slights direct assessment of potential clients' needs.
