There's quite a list of options here.
Though nothing about penal colonies on the Moon.
I've gone for treating different criminals differently.
The punishment should fit the crime.
But I'm also opting for preferential treatment amongst the inmates.
So if your in for a short stretch your name should be first on the list when it comes to rehabilitation.
If your a brutal lifer instead of the usual work preparation stuff they should be taught how to curb their violent impulses.
They can then move onto the next level in the workshop if they succeed.
However carpentry isn't going to help when you get released at 70 years old.
If you wanted to be harsh without being cruel all inmates would have no choice but to work.
But it would be  topsy- turvy world without prisons and not much fun for law- abiding citizens.

it should not cost more to keep a prisoner then it does to keep an o.a.p. make so when they come out they dont want to go back.

Recidivism is not caused by prisoners wanting to go back.
