ADDICTION TREATMENT SERVICES
Addiction Treatment Services oversees the delivery of substance abuse treatment to ADC offenders identified as being in need of intervention. The screening process is based on self report and/or a review of the available corresponding data. Offenders are ranked according to need, time left to serve, and risk for recidivism into one of four services categories: Intensive Treatment, Moderate Treatment, Educational, or no need.
DUI treatment is offered at Private Prison facilities for male offenders and through contract services at ASPC-Perryville for female offenders. These programs provide 36 hours of DUI treatment as statutorily mandated for convicted DUI offenders. Offenders attend classes in such topics as parenting, family dynamics of addiction, and stress management throughout their length of sentence.
