Intervention and Reentry Services provides oversight of inmate programming, ensuring best practice methods are utilized in the delivery of effective interventions. Cognitive behavioral and social learning modalities are the preferred method of program delivery. Substance abuse treatment and cognitive restructuring programs that address criminal thinking and problem solving are available to inmates who have an assessed need in these areas.
Inmate program participation data is routinely collected and analyzed to determine program effectiveness. Contract management and compliance for outside treatment intervention services are provided by Program Services staff.
As the inmate nears the end of his/her incarceration, a reentry plan is developed. Attention is focused toward the inmate’s employment, housing, education, substance abuse treatment, aftercare and transitional service needs.
