On 4 July 2017 The Associated Press reported:
A peer counseling program established and operated by inmates inside a Connecticut prison is being credited with reducing recidivism and disciplinary infractions. The program, launched two years ago by seven inmates serving lengthy sentences, involves an eight-week curriculum and outside speakers.
