Community Justice Assistance Division
Some offenders are required by the courts to live in special facilities while they complete their community supervision. Residential facilities allow judges to save prison beds for violent felons while giving all offenders the treatment or sanction that will serve them and society best.
Court Residential Treatment Centers (CRTC) provide offenders with substance abuse treatment and educational, vocational, and life skills training. Many CRTCs include employment during the final phase of the program. Some facilities also provide treatment and services for offenders with mental deficiencies or emotional/family problems.
Substance Abuse Treatment Facilities (SATF) are designed specifically to provide cognitive-based substance abuse treatment. SATFs may also include educational, life skills, and supportive 12-step orientation or modified therapeutic community treatment programs.
Restitution Centers target offenders who have problems maintaining employment and paying court-ordered obligations and who do not indicate serious substance abuse problems. Programming provided in RCs usually includes cognitive correctional intervention programs, community service restitution (CSR), employment readiness, and education and life skills training.
Intermediate Sanction Facilities (ISF) CSCD-operated ISFs are used as intermediate sanctions for supervision violators in an effort to give the courts an incapacitation custody option other than revocation or incarceration. Programming provided in ISFs usually includes a substance abuse component, CSR, education, cognitive and life skills programs, and an employment component. Some CSCD-operated ISFs have an employment component.
Mentally Impaired Offender Facilities (MIOF) provide the courts with a sentencing alternative for offenders with demonstrated/documented mental health issues. Most of these programs address offenders with co-occurring disorders of mental health and substance abuse. Programming in the MIOF includes a broad range of mental health, substance abuse, and life skills services for offenders with mental impairments in a residential setting.
