Rehabilitation pays off

Welcome to the Division of Rehabilitative Programs

The Division of Rehabilitative Programs (DRP) is a branch of the California Department of Corrections & Rehabilitation (CDCR).

Our mission, as part of CDCR, is to help offenders leave prison with better job or career skills, education, life skills, and confidence, so they can succeed in their futures despite past obstacles. To accomplish this, DRP provides numerous rehabilitative programs and services to both prison inmates and parolees. Evidence shows successful rehabilitation is good for communities in a multitude of ways, including a significant reduction in criminal recidivism.
