OKLAHOMA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS

BILL JOHNSON CORRECTIONAL CENTER

The Charles E. “Bill” Johnson Correctional Center (BJCC) is a substance abuse/cognitive behavior program facility in Alva, Oklahoma. The minimum-security facility houses more than 600 male inmates, most of whom are serving time for drug-related offenses. BJCC, which opened in 1995, is named for Charles E. “Bill” Johnson. Johnson’s leadership helped create the original 300-bed Drug Offender Work Camp called the Regimented Treatment Program (RTP).

Regimented Treatment Program

With nearly 200 inmates, BJCC’s Regimented Treatment Program combines high structure, physical training with cognitive behavioral treatment. In addition to receiving substance abuse treatment, they learn self-discipline, and must show initiative, motivation, and improved behavior to graduate.

Delayed Sentencing Program

Delayed Sentencing Program for 18 to 22 year olds (approx. 110 participants). Judges can place inmates into the program, which rewards the inmate with dismissal, deferment or probation upon completion. Available also is the Intermediate Revocation Program, which is a short-term incarceration for certain kinds of probation violators.

Education

Most inmates lack education, a key component in voiding re-incarceration. BJCC offers literacy courses as well as Pre-High School Equivalency and High School Equivalency diplomas. Approximately 100 inmates are typically enrolled.

Substance Abuse treatment

Majority of inmates assess a substance abuse treatment need. Facility programming teaches ways to avoid relapse, while also helping them develop cognitive, social, emotional, and coping skills.

Criminal Thinking

BJCC offers Thinking for a Change, Moral Reconation Therapy, Associates 4 Success, and many more programs to address thinking, judgment errors, and relationships linked with criminal thinking/behavior.
