Inmate Programs



Some of the treatment programs offered at the MRCC are Intensive 2.1, and Cognitive Change. If recommended for treatment programming, the inmates name is placed on a waiting list. The lists are generally developed in accordance with discharge or personal appearance dates before the Parole Board. Some treatment may be completed prior to the personal appearance before Parole Board.


The R.I.P has been designed as an intervention for inmates on parole that violated their conditions, and are destined to return to the Rapid Intervention Program at the Penitentiary to fulfill their parole obligations. The program is designed to offer an alternative for violators. Instead of doing all their suspended time, the R.I.P. will offer a chance to complete earlier and return to community life. The program has been designed as an open entry open exit program. The inmate’s positive behavior and staff evaluations will determine how long they will remain in the program. The goal is to get the inmate back into the community as soon as possible which is a tremendous benefit to the inmate. Inmates involved in the R.I.P. program are expected to adhere to a more strict structure and guidelines then other inmates at the MRCC.


Literature from the Treatment Department on topics such as aggression control and substance abuse may be available through the Treatment Department. The need for the self help program is identified by inmate self report, Case Manager sessions, Correctional Case Worker sessions, or treatment personnel visits. The MRCC has various NA, AA and a CMA self help groups.
