Religion’s Impact on Prisoner’s Rehabilitation

Overwhelmingly, state prison chaplains agreed in a Gallup poll that religious counseling and other religion-based programming are important factors in rehabilitating prisoners. In the poll, released March 22, 73 percent of prison chaplains considered access to religious programs in prison to be “absolutely critical” to successful rehabilitation of inmates. Seventy-eight percent said support from religious groups after inmates are released is integral to an inmate’s successful re-entry into society.
