Each offender is assigned a clinical staff person who will provide counseling and case management throughout the offender’s entire stay. The staff and offender develop a treatment plan that encompasses the offender’s needs, as well as goals, and a timetable for accomplishment. The treatment plan is revised as necessary, depending upon the offender’s progress. The assigned clinical staff person will also assist the offender in planning for life after MonDay; obtaining housing, employment, and maintaining a responsible life-style.
The assessment on each offender begins at the screening interview and continues throughout the offender’s stay. If the assessment reveals a need for CD treatment, the offender will be placed on an individualized track. The CD treatment could vary from attending a CD group weekly to a residential track that includes 6 hours of programming daily.
MonDay has a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor on staff. This gives the clinical team the ability to provide psychological assessments and individual counseling. Community service agencies offer a full range of supplemental services to offenders, such as grief counseling, parenting, sexual abuse, post traumatic syndrome, and other mental health issues.
All offenders take the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) within 15 days of admission that determines the offender’s level of academic functioning to help in educational placement. Offenders, who test at a sixth grade level or above and do not have a high school diploma, are placed in the General Equivalency Diploma (GED) classes. Offenders who test at the fifth grade level or below are placed in the Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes. Offenders who have graduated from high school, but test at below the tenth grade level, are placed in classes corresponding to their needs. All educational classes are taught by state certified teachers.
This program is designed to help offenders prepare for their career setting goals by writing resumes and focusing on areas such as interviews, punctuality, dress, and appearance.
Offenders have the opportunity to participate in unpaid vocational experiences through the Education, Maintenance, or Food Service Departments. Some also earn the privilege of working at a paid position outside the facility. Both types of vocational experiences are an integral part of programming. It helps develop a sense of direction and a frame of reference.
Community service work offers an opportunity for the offender to give something back to the community. This helps the offender create a sense of self-respect while learning new skills.
Offenders who are progressing well in the program may volunteer to speak at local schools about their experiences. Discussions with students include issues relating to negative choices made that resulted in incarceration. MonDay also hosts school groups who visit the facility and interact with the offenders, and experience the TC.
