Program Philosophy: To provide intensive substance abuse treatment and behavior modification to prepare offenders for release into community based treatment or into an intermediate sanction such as Strafford County Drug Court, Strafford County Community Corrections or Strafford County Academy
Program Structure: Program has 3 Phases of Treatment. Each phase is a minimum of 30 days. (The program counselors and treatment team decide individual treatment course in each phase which may last longer than the minimum length of the phase.) Participants may be court ordered to complete specific phases as a precursor or sanction for community release or complete all phases as an alternative to community based programs.
Program Activities: All program activities are mandatory:
Participants are held to a higher standard of behavior. Any infraction of a facility rule may constitute removal from the program. Additional program specific rules are also in place.
Persons wishing to apply can fill out an application which will be reviewed by the treatment team. If the application is approved, a second interview with a program counselor will be held.
Since the program is within the correctional facility the program is open to anyone desiring recovery. Due to the demand for this program there is generally a waiting list.
