Programs and Services to Help with the Basics of Life
CTS provides a range of basic services to assist residents in the transition from prison to everyday life, including employment preparation, anger management sessions and parenting classes. We have partnerships at community agencies and refer residents for medical care, clothing assistance and education.
CTS has established arrangements with Park Duvalle Community Health Center and The Cardinal Health Clinic to provide residents health care for free or at greatly reduced rates.
Substance Abuse Programs:
We are a Certified Recovery Dynamics program and a licensed AODE (Alcohol and Other Drug Entity). CTS initiated its Substance Abuse Program (SAP) in 2010. The program has flourished and has a positive influence on the general resident population, who begin to find the meaning of pride and dignity. In addition Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings are held at the facility.
Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT):
MRT is a cognitive-behavioral treatment system that leads to enhanced moral reasoning, better decision making, and more appropriate behavior. Studies have shown that this treatment is effective in the reduction of recidivism.
For residents who have not graduated from high school, assistance in obtaining a high school equivalency certificate by passing a General Education Development (GED®) test is provided in partnership with Ahrens Vocational School, which is receptive to the needs of CTS residents.
