PSYCHOLOGY AND PSYCHIATRY PROGRAMS

Inmates who have personal problems and wish to receive help are invited to contact the Psychology Department staff. A written request or personal visit to the department located above the Inmate Clothing Room in the southwest corner of the compound is all that is needed to arrange an appointment.

Offerings include Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Values Training, and other voluntary groups. Aid is offered to assist you in your efforts to evaluate your own personality, gain understanding of yourself and others, develop and grow personally, and to relate to others effectively. Consultation, crisis intervention-type counseling sessions, relaxation training sessions, self-study, and meditative techniques are available for your development during your incarceration here.

Inmates may notice when another inmate appears to be exceptionally upset or depressed. If this occurs, notify Psychology, the Unit Team, or the Unit Officer. They will attempt to assist with any difficulty the inmate may have. Whether or not you were recommended for any psychology programming, it is your responsibility to follow-up and ensure that you get the services that you either want or need.

In addition to the various psychological and counseling opportunities, the Drug Abuse Education Program affords specialized group and other services in consideration of the needs of all inmates with or without an alcohol/drug abuse history.

Inmates interested in the Residential Drug Abuse Treatment Program are invited to contact one of the Drug Abuse Treatment Program staff to determine whether or not they are qualified for this program.

Psychiatric medication needs are arranged on a consultation basis through the Health Services Department.
Notices regarding the information of special group offerings will be posted on the housing unit bulletin boards. Feel free to
drop by and see what we offer.
