While incarcerated, reading is often the best use of time. Please note that books and magazines, puzzles, and word searches ordered for inmates must come directly from the publisher. This policy ensures that the items are new, untampered, and comply with the facility's regulations. Prisons and jails enforce this rule to prevent the introduction of contraband or prohibited materials. By restricting orders to publishers, the facility can better maintain security and control over the content entering the institution. Any books or magazines not received directly from the publisher will be rejected and not delivered to the inmate. You may, however, send letters and selfies to inmates with this easy-to-use app, packages starting at only $8.00.

The ADCRR–Douglas-Complex Detention Unit(CDU) operates as one of five inner-prison detention wings within ADCRR-Douglas, with CDU being the sole maximum security unit. The other units include Gila, Eggers, Mohave, and Papago. Initially, the Maricopa unit, now closed, was the first operational unit, followed by the Mohave unit. Due to prison overcrowding, portable modular housing was utilized to construct the Gila unit. The addition of the Papago Unit was necessitated for short-term DUI females, while the Special Detention Unit was introduced to manage Douglas inmates requiring administrative or disciplinary segregation.

In terms of education, CDU offers Adult Basic Education (ABE), enabling inmates to pursue their General Equivalency Diploma (GED) while incarcerated. Additional educational programs include Mandated Adult Education and the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE). Collaborative Work-Based Education (WBE) initiatives with Cochise College cover various fields such as Building Construction Technology, Computer Technology, Automotive Technology, AC Refrigeration certification, and Electronics. Inmates also have the opportunity to work towards an associate degree through classes offered by Cochise College.

Treatment and self-improvement programs at CDU encompass Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), and Moderate Treatment for Substance Abuse. Additionally, inmates participate in programs focusing on cultural diversity, cognitive restructuring, and Merging Two Worlds, which equip them with essential life skills to prepare for reentry into society. These initiatives reflect CDU's commitment to promoting rehabilitation and successful reintegration of inmates.
