Community Corrections

Community Corrections outpatient programs offer close supervision and supportive treatment services for offenders who are considered as having a high set of needs that, if not met, render them at a higher risk for reoffending. Community Corrections outpatient offenders tend to have chronic needs such as mental health diagnoses, homelessness, severe medical conditions, and multiple unsuccessful attempts at substance abuse treatment, among others. Community Corrections services also include gender-specific supervision and treatment for female offenders with high needs. The duration of Community Corrections outpatient programming is six to twelve months.

Community Corrections residential programs – the Men’s and Women’s Recovery Academies – offer intensive substance abuse treatment and mental health services to parolees who need a transition from prison to community, as well as for parolees and probationers who are facing violations, as an alternative to incarceration. The Men’s Recovery Academy offers substance abuse treatment to up to eighty four male offenders, and the Women’s Recovery Academy offers substance abuse and mental health treatment to up to forty eight female offenders in two tracks: substance abuse/mental health and moms and kids seeking on-campus reunification. A halfway house for males and females is also offered at each program. Residential programs are six months in duration, and the halfway houses are designed to help offenders for a maximum of four months.

Drug Court

Drug Courts are designed to provide community-based treatment and supervision to selected offenders who are identified as having substance abuse issues. Drug courts work closely with the judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, probation/parole authorities and other corrections personnel, law enforcement, pre-trial service agencies, law enforcement, vocational rehabilitation, education and housing, and treatment providers.
