The Immersion National Reentry Program was developed in mid-2018 by a consortium of volunteers and staff from around the country who have been doing reentry work. Immersion was developed after exchanging best practices, doing research and engaging in discussions. The Immersion National Program guidelines are designed to set national Society-wide minimum standards to ensure a quality program with the ability to measure quality of outcomes and program effectiveness.
