Secure Diversionary Treatment Program – Disease Processes

Cognitive Program
  • Description

    The nursing staff educates offenders about diabetes, asthma, seizures, hypo/hypertension, and other health conditions. Offenders learn about self-exams for early detection, as well as how to modify their diet and exercise habits when coping with specific disease processes. This program is part of the Secure Diversionary Treatment Program (SDTP) for Serious Mental Illness (SMI) Offenders. SDTP is designed to provide a secure and safe alternative treatment option for offenders with a major mental illness who otherwise would be in restrictive housing because behavior that may be considered a threat to safety and security of staff or other offenders. Offenders who qualify often exhibit behaviors that are intractable and unresponsive to the usual therapeutic and management interventions available in the regular general population setting.
