The primary function of this unit is to provide mental health and substance abuse treatment services to inmates who have been remanded to our custody and care. Our inmates provide a complex clinical picture because of the nature of their mental health issues (15 -20% of our population) and substance abuse histories (70 - 80% of the population), consistent with national data of disease prevalence in correctional institutions. Those with both diagnoses, in combination with their overall compromised physical health status, are especially challenging.
Other components in this unit include Sexual Offender Treatment Programs, Counseling of Offenders Who Are Victims of Sexual Violence, and the Mentally Ill Offenders Discharge program.
