Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare provides a 50 bed, residential program for male inmates at the Columbia River Correctional Institution (CRCI) in Portland, Oregon. The program serves inmates who have histories of severe addiction and criminality and is designed to reduce recidivism by addressing each inmate’s substance abuse and criminal risk factors.
The program uses an evidenced-based, cognitive behavioral curriculum in a therapeutic community and includes therapy groups, community based work challenges and re-entry groups. Materials are presented in formats that complement individual learning styles and encourage positive decision making skills and solid recovery plans.
Families, parole and probation officers, community partners, after care providers, the religious community, and other interested social service providers are encouraged to participate in a client’s in-patient and continuing community based recovery.
The program is a minimum six months long with inmates engaged in treatment activities at least fourteen hours each day.
