    Program

    La Maison Joins-Toi aims to be a bridge between the prison institution and the community and an instrument for the prevention of recidivism favoring the cognitive behavioral approach. The objectives of the program are deinstitutionalization, taking charge of family and social responsibilities, the development of autonomy as well as the adoption of socially acceptable behaviors. Much of the program is individualized, so that everyone progresses at their own pace and according to their specific goals.
