Psychology and Psychiatry Programs

Inmates have access to a Psychologist who provides counseling and other mental health services. Each Psychologist has an office inside the institution, and at the Satellite Prison Camp, where he or she can be easily reached by inmates to help develop ongoing counseling programs, or for personal crisis intervention.

Individual and group therapy are available along with a variety of substance abuse programs.

We also have a contract Psychiatrist, available by referral from the Psychologist.

Counseling Activities

There are many programs available for inmates who are experiencing personal problems. These programs include Alcoholics Anonymous, Self-Image groups, and other voluntary groups. Inmate participation in these activities will be encouraged upon staff’s assessment of inmate needs. Participation in these programs is voluntary. The staff of each unit is available for informal counseling sessions, and they also conduct formal group counseling activities.
