Why send inmates on a wilderness program if they will be returned to their cells in a matter of days?

Oak Hill is a District of Columbia jail for males, located in Laurel, Maryland. Recently nine Oak Hill inmates were sent on a survival program, apparently to help them better adjust to society. Fine and dandy if the result is to release them from incarceration at the end of successfully completing the survival program, but quite another thing if the inmates are returned to incarceration, which they were.
