Bernadeth Palomera De Guzman, MPA1
The first step in rehabilitation effort is to provide the basic needs of inmate as human being. The other steps in the rehabilitation processes are the provision of work programs, health care, education and skills training, recreation and sports, religious guidance and behavior modification using the therapeutic community approach. Thus, the study determined the correlation on the status and effectiveness of Rehabilitation Program of the Oriental Mindoro Provincial Jail. The study employed descriptive-correlation method to gather information about the present condition and to determine whether variables were related to one another using self-prepared questionnaire. The respondents of the study were the 60 inmates who were selected using purposive random sampling. The study found out that Rehabilitation Program of Oriental Mindoro Provincial Jail was known to the community because some people know what were the activities of the inmates inside the Provincial Jail. The public lacks information regarding the Rehabilitation Program of the Provincial Jail. Among the programs, spiritual development was the best program inside the Oriental Mindoro Provincial Jail. The status is related to the level of effectiveness of the Rehabilitation Program. Finally, Oriental Mindoro Provincial Jail should continuously practice and improve the Rehabilitation Program by considering good governance and effective public administration. Information regarding the Rehabilitation Program should be disseminated properly and widespread by organizing meetings, by providing flyers and posting tarpaulins or banners for the private sectors, non-governmental organizations and people’s organizations. They may be encouraged to contribute in maintaining the vocational skill training, recreation, education, values formation and spiritual development. A similar study should be conducted to other provincial jails in the country to verify the findings of the study.
