Finding employment with a felony is difficult. Past studies have shown that manualized programs can lead to rapid employment. However, no studies have evaluated longer follow-up periods or the effect of programs on overall amount of employment. This study followed 111 veterans in three different vocational service models. Two of the models used a specialized vocational manual. All veterans had at least one felony and a mental health or substance dependence diagnosis. The findings showed that using the manual in a group led by vocational staff led to higher employment rates, quicker employment, and more employment overall.
