Criminal Conduct and Substance Abuse
Criminal Conduct and Substance Abuse Treatment is a cognitive-behavioral treatment for changing the behaviors of women who have both histories of substance abuse and criminal justice system involvement. The purpose is to effectively prevent recidivism and substance abuse relapse. The program provides operational guidelines for a 9 to 12 month curriculum, specifically designed for substance abusing offenders. Rationale, objectives, content, and presentation sequence have been developed for three phases of treatment delivery: challenge to change, commitment to change, and ownership of change. Though the program is available to incarcerated men and women in Oklahoma, the facilitator’s guide for women is gender responsive.
