Inpatient Drug & Alcohol Treatment
THE PROGRAM for Offenders, Inc. provides the men and women of the Allegheny County Jail with therapeutic services aimed at giving them a second chance at life by providing them with the skills necessary to be successful in their recovery and as productive members of society. In order to reduce recidivism, the research has shown that it is more cost effective to treat the root of the problem and provide rehabilitation as opposed to incarceration as treatment costs far less than incarceration. We need to aid in fixing the problem rather than only managing it. Addiction is not simply a matter of low willpower or poor character and requires more than just abstinence to achieve recovery.
We are a licensed, medically monitored long term residential facility (3C) and work in conjunction with psychiatrists, mental health professionals, medical doctors and other outside support agencies to provide our clients with comprehensive care in addition to in house case management services and drug and alcohol treatment.
