Are You Preparing Jail Inmates for Successful Reentry?
Recognizing the unique challenges jails face, GEO Reentry Services offers county sheriffs and probation officials valuable reentry programming for individuals in jail. Our cognitive behavioral treatment programs prepare inmates for a successful release, and in many cases generate bridges to continued treatment in the community.
We bring our reentry expertise to your jail
With more than three decades of experience, GEO Reentry offers jail programs refined through practice, collaboration with county agencies, and guidance by respected national experts. Our reentry services are founded on evidence-based practices designed to promote safety, reduce recidivism, and prepare individuals for life after jail.
Candidates are carefully selected by jail officials for these treatment programs. Our trained staff conduct a risk/needs assessment so that every participant undergoes treatment and training tailored to their needs. We work closely with jail staff to maximize results.
Goals for jail reentry programs that have a lasting impact
Jail treatment programs prepare inmates for their transition back home, increasing the likelihood that they will become productive community members and leave criminal activity behind. At the root of our jail program curriculum is cognitive behavioral treatment.
Equipping individuals with the skills necessary to navigate life outside of jail is critical to their success. Our curriculum includes job and life skills training, cognitive behavioral treatment that addresses criminal thinking, self-directed journaling, substance abuse treatment, and more.
While our jail reentry programs deliver positive reinforcement, pro-social modeling and hope for inmates, these programs also demand participants be accountable for program guidelines.
A structured approach for jail inmates
GEO Reentry’s jail reentry programs include assessment, treatment planning, life skills, one-on-one treatment sessions and self-directed journaling. Our expert case managers work closely with participants as they progress through the program, and they also develop release plans 30 to 60 days prior to release.
Peers learn from peers, and our collaborative group treatment environment offers support from those facing similar challenges. With jail officials, we set up group rooms that meet the needs of inmates and facility managers.
Our mobile computer lab offers GED prep courses for program participants, which can help propel individuals toward further schooling or employment opportunities. Using laptops allows for flexibility in program delivery, and several precautions limit security issues.
Program fidelity and training
Delivering quality programs is our top priority. Our dedicated corporate training and research teams continuously assesses best practices, program fidelity and measure outcomes within all programs.
