Residential Treatment Program
The RTP is based on a bio-psychosocial rehabilitation model. Central to this model is the expectation that seriously mentally ill individuals cannot be successfully treated solely with psychotropic medications. Therefore, the primary treatment focus of the RTP is provision of those skills necessary to enable prisoners to function independently within the general prison population or in the community following parole release or discharge. Group therapy is the primary focus of treatment, providing RTP prisoners with a wide range of groups including, but not limited to: physical activity groups, Dual Diagnosis, Dialectical Based Training and cognitive restructuring.
