As briefly discussed above, although SOAPP factors are described below as positive and protective, we can nonetheless visualize "risky" variants of each factor.
Although the exact nature of these variables was not defined, and offender planning was not necessarily related to reduced recidivism for offenders treated in community-based settings, these data provide tentative support for the contention that the development of realistic and strong plans is an essential ingredient in effective and safe community reintegration and a key element in the SOAPP approach to reintegration.
Perhaps it is self-evident to most readers, but it is nevertheless important to note that each aspect of the SOAPP not only addresses individual risk and protective-relevant issues, but also overlaps with every other aspect of the SOAPP as these issues are not mutually exclusive.
A review of 524 charts with completed SOAPP
data found that more than a quarter of cancer patients (29%) were at high risk, she said, noting that the high-risk group included 43% of patients aged 18-35 years, 27% of patients older than 35 years, 72% of smokers, 40% of those who were unemployed, 60% of those with a history of drug use, and 32% of those with a history of alcohol abuse.
