SCCI Oregon SUMMIT Program
The Oregon SUMMIT Program is an Alternative Incarceration Program which was established at Shutter Creek Correctional Institution (SCCI) in March of 1994.  The Oregon SUMMIT Program is one of three Alternative Incarceration Programs offered by the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) to selected inmates who are at risk of reoffending due to untreated addictions and criminal thinking.  SUMMIT is an acronym for "Success Using Motivation, Morale, Intensity, and Treatment."  The primary components of the program are:  Cognitive Change, Education, Substance Abuse Education, Physical Work and Exercise, Decision Making, Anger Management, Spiritual Wellness, and Teamwork.
Offenders volunteer for the program, which begins with a 6-month institutional phase, and are motivated to do so in that, upon successful completion, they are released to a 90-day transitional leave in the community, then to post-prison supervision with an early release from prison.  The program and sentence reduction were established by Oregon Law.
The program schedule runs from 5:30 am to 9:30 pm, seven days a week.  Inmates are evaluated daily, and inmates who fail to maintain adequate standards of progress are removed from the program and returned to general population.
The goal of SUMMIT is to assist offenders in developing socially acceptable tools to succeed as citizens in our communities.  The SUMMIT Program is a chance to make a difference - to change lives and, therefore, enhance the safety and security of our communities.
