How it works
Streamlined RANT includes a client risk/needs assessment that can be administered by program personnel in 15 minutes or less – with minimal training required. Simple screens guide users through the 19 items individually and instantly provides client-level reporting upon completion.

Reports
The software immediately generates an easily understandable scored report sorting offenders into one of four risk/needs quadrants with direct implications for the optimal level of criminal justice supervision and behavioral health care. The report also lists the specific risk and needs factors identified for the client.

Research
RANT is derived from empirical evidence showing that outcomes in community correctional settings are influenced by how well drug offenders are matched to services suited to both their criminogenic risks and clinical needs. Backed by years of systematic research by our team, RANT has shown good internal consistency, has been independently validated by several organizations, and its findings have been published in a peer reviewed journal.

How it works
Streamlined DUI-RANT includes a client risk/needs assessment that can be administered by program personnel in 15-20 minutes or less,with minimal training required. Simple screens guide users through the 23 items individually and instantly provides client-level reporting upon completion. DUI-RANT utilizes industry-standard data encryption.

Reports
The software immediately generates an easily understandable report sorting offenders into one of four risk/needs quadrants with direct implications for the optimal level of criminal justice supervision and behavioral health care. In addition to a risk/needs score, the report also lists the specific risk and needs factors identified for the client.

Research
DUI-RANT was derived from empirical evidence showing that outcomes in community correctional settings are influenced by how well offenders are matched to services suited to both their criminogenic risks and clinical needs. Additionally, DUI offenders have been shown to present with unique markers of risk and need that distinguish them from drug offenders. Most states and jurisdictions rely heavily on blood alcohol concentration levels and number of prior DUI offenses in making sentencing and treatment decisions. Our research identified and incorporated the predictive use of these markers into the DUI-RANT.
