Program Descriptions

Chemical Dependency (CD)

  A structured 39-week, cognitive-behavioral treatment program  designed to address substance use and criminal thinking.  Each of the  seven phases is intended to target the resident’s thoughts, attitudes,  and beliefs that can lead to negative behaviors, as well as the  development and implementation of effective coping skills.  Residents  participate in individual and group counseling, educational and  treatment classes, CSR, and employment.  

Dual Diagnosis (DD)

 A structured 39-week, cognitive-behavioral treatment program designed to  address substance use and criminal thinking for residents with mental  health-issues.  This can include mental illness or impairment, such as  Major Depression, Bipolar Disorder, ADD/ADHD, Schizophrenia, or lower  cognitive functioning.  Residents must be  stable and  capable of participating and completing the program.  Potential  residents need to have an I.Q. of 70 or greater in order to effectively  complete the cognitive-behavioral program.  DD is structured similarly  to the CD program, but in addition to addressing thoughts, attitudes,  beliefs, and negative behaviors, residents are instructed on how to  increase and apply effective coping skills, as well as appropriate  management of their mental health concerns.  Participation in the  employment component of the program is determined on a case-by-case  basis.  

Specialized Placement (SP)

  Designed to focus on high-risk offenders.  It is a specialized track of  the CD program.  Residents follow the CD schedule, with additional  classes to meet their needs.  The program criteria includes, but is not  limited to a score of LS or CC on the SCS, a history of extensive  substance use or criminal behavior, and/or multiple or recurrent  behavioral problems while at the CRTC. 


 A four to six month track of the CD program intended to be an additional  sentencing alternative for CSCD's.  Relapse is for residents who have  exited the Facility successfully, but are now violating their conditions  of probation.  The Relapse track focuses on skills and tools to help  prevent further relapse or recidivism.  Residents are assessed on an  individual basis on their appropriateness for the program.
