State departments are working together with local elected officials and human services agencies to coordinate services and integrate support systems that connect the returning prisoner, service providers, and the community. MPRI bridges the work of key state agencies involved in prisoner re-entry and systemically improves the reintegration process.
Michigan Prisoner Reentry initiative – The Michigan Department of Corrections (MDOC) envisions the placement of an offender into the community as a carefully planned process. It is guided by a Transition Accountability Plan (TAP/Case Plan) which provides the prisoner with a course of learning, upon incarceration, and is meant to prepare him or her for a legally and socially acceptable adjustment to life in the community by the time they have completed the minimum term of imprisonment ordered by the court. Supported by experienced professionals in the public and private sectors before, during, and after release from incarceration, the prisoner will have the tools necessary to prepare him or herself for parole. And, following parole, the offender will have the resources and guidance necessary to support successful community adjustment.

MPRI-Breaking the Cycle (BTC) – MPRI-Breaking the Cycle (BTC) is a cognitive re-structuring program designed specifically for the men and women transitioning back into their communities after incarceration. Studies clearly show that cognitive behavioral models are a critical factor in the reduction of recidivism. The cognitive behavior theory (CBT) is based on the assumption that most emotional and behavioral reactions are learned. Therefore the goal of programming is to help clients unlearn their unwanted reactions, to re-learn a new way of acting and to break the cycle of unwanted consequences.
