The Intensive Outpatient Program is a six-month treatment program that addresses drug and alcohol problems. This is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) program which is Reentry and Earned Credit approved. The purpose of the program is: To provide effective evidence based cognitive behavioral interventions to treat alcohol and other drug use disorders and to prevent relapse for Ohio’s incarcerated felons, including those with co-morbid conditions; To reduce tax payer expense and burden to state revenue by providing effective substance use disorder treatment that promotes positive change in the offender’s lives. Recovery services programs have demonstrated success at reducing recidivism (source: 2011 CIIC Report). National research regarding recovery service programs shows that such programs result in significant cost savings of approximately $7 or more dollars return for each dollar spent in programming through reductions in recidivism among program completers. South Dakota, for example, showed cost-benefits of prison recovery at $8.43 saved for every $1.00 spent in programs.
The DTP is a residential unit designed to be an intermediate step between RTU level of care and general population for offenders with severe mental illness. DTP offenders do not need RTU level of care, but are determined to be more vulnerable to decompensation or are unable to function in general population without more intensive support. The DTP offers individualized mental health treatment including activity therapy and medication management.
The reading rooms encourage family literacy by providing a pleasant and comfortable setting for both child and incarcerated parent. Each room is stocked with a wide variety of children’s books and has an inmate narrator who reads to the visiting children twice a day. The role of the inmate narrator is to read picture books to the children in much the same manner that children’s hour would be done at a public library. A variety of arts and craft supplies for the children are also available in most of the rooms. Many of the supplies and books are donated by employees and service organizations.
