This study set out to examine the incarceration experiences of juvenile offenders in a maximum-security detention facility. Using the phenomenological descriptive methodology, semi-structured interviews were carried out with 16 adolescent male detainees and recorded on audio cassettes. The study found that there was the inadequate provision of services and rehabilitative programming at these prisons. while the incarceration experience placed detainees in a state of readiness for positive change, it failed to provide them with the necessary skills to actually bring about and sustain this change. This study corroborates the findings of other studies of offenders in juvenile prisons about the inadequacy of rehabilitative measures for offenders, to prevent recidivism.
