Moderate‐certainty evidence shows that for female offenders, intensive discharge planning plus community‐based case management probably results in fewer arrests at 12 months (on average, 8 vs 42 per 1000 women) and fewer positive hair tests for marijuana (on average, 202 vs 269 per 1000 women) but has minimal or no effect on self‐reported marijuana use, hard drug use, positive hair tests for crack cocaine, drug charges at 12 months, or incarceration.
