Freedom from Drugs Course
This is a drug abuse education course designed to provide information about the consequences of drug/alcohol abuse and addiction. Participation in this course may be either mandatory or voluntary.
An inmate is required to participate in the Choice and Change course if he has been sentenced or returned to custody as a violator after September 30, 1991, and it is determined that:
- There is evidence in the PSI that alcohol or other drug use contributed to the commission of the instant offense;
- Alcohol or other drug use was a reason for violation either of supervised release, including parole, or CCC placement for which the inmate is now incarcerated; OR
- The inmate was recommended for drug programming during incarceration by the sentencing judge.
An inmate may request to participate voluntarily in the Choice and Change course by submitting an “Inmate Request to Staff Member” form to the DAP Psychologist.
