Background: Studies show that a stable economy, housing and employment is important preparations for release from prison. Clients who are released to a disorderly situation feel fear and anxiety.

Results: Our results will be displayed by themes: To have goals, to stay away from negativity, having a supportive environment, to have home, having accommodation and to have the opportunity to health care. These themes have subthemes: Short and long-term sustainable goals, to use experiences to help others, restart, difficulty, jacking by family and friends, support of professional, a home to go to, nothing to come home to, the ability to obtain a meaningful work, the ability to education. Conclusion: The correctional workers needs knowledge of what former inmates with substance problems felt that they lacked at release.
